28. August 2015

Ato Dichasas is a well known researcher  for Moringa over 20 years. We had the privilage to visit his researching place.

August 2015

Together with Ato Girma Belay we visited other Areas in the Raya Valley to see other potential places. After having seen the options we descidet to apply for the land near Kukuftu, called „Bagiea-Delwo“.

May 2015

Arranged by the research center of Mekele we could see some of the potential areas. Unfortunitely we were not sattisfied as the land shown to us was full of trees. As Ethiopia is in demand of forest, we did not dare to cut down all the trees which were kept by the farmers in good condition for years. Incouraged by all the effortes from the side of the research center and the government we descided that Josua will come back again in August to see some other options.

May 2015

We, Josua and Heidi Gehrig visit for the first time the north of Ethiopia – Tigray, together with our friends Peter and Edith Lippuner. We all had been touched by what we saw and experienced. The grate support given by officials incouraged us to come back and grow a business with social impact.

Donate now

Living in a war afflicted area as a family in the North of Ethiopia and having seen all the sufferings, it is our greatest wish to help as much as we can. People die due to lack of food and medicine. As we live together with the people of te community we have access to the most needy people. We do not have administrational expenses, therefore your donation will be used to 100% for the people in need.

One of our extended goals are to help farmers who used to employ people but there farms have been destroyed. By this we can create jobs and food at the same time. Any support also in kind ore skill is welcomed.

Please feel free to contact us for more informations.
We thank you in advance for your support!
The Gehrig family.
