Baobab seeds: my panacea
Explain your idea in details:
Our project is to transform baobab into several derivatives. We want to fight against malnutrition through this nutritional tree. So we will have caffeine-free and therapeutic baobab coffee, baobab leaves, baobab bread, baobab chocolate, baobab pulp powder, syrup and jam, baobab cookies and sweets, mustard baobab, baobab potash, baobab beer, biodegradable baobab sacks, etc ... the cakes from our products will be used to feed the animals and serve as natural fertilizers. The hulls are a good substitute for charcoal, which reduces the destruction of trees. Each target will have to find pleasure through our products. A healthy diet, a healthy environment, the empowerment of women, these are the goals we aim for. One of our objectives is also to train 100 rural women per year on the techniques of transformation and use of baobab for their real empowerment. We are also implementing a vegetable production technique of baobab leaves in order to avoid the deterioration of the species.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Our products are not only original but they help reduce the rate of malnutrition, reduce the poverty rate and contribute to the economic growth of our country. We also protect the environment through the value chain we maintain. Thanks to our market gardening of baobab leaves we maintain the diversity of baobab and offer natural and organic products. None of our garbage flowing, roof turns.
