About this submission
When Mariam, a young farmer living in Bamako, Mali, fell incredibly sick, her mother turned to moringa to cure her. Almost instantly, Mariam's immune system was revitalized. This is the story of moringa- a nutritious and delicious tree that can grow even in one of the driest and hottest regions in the world-The Sahel Desert. Mariam is working to cultivate organic moringa at a large scale using a variety of innovative farming techniques, so that many others can enjoy the benefits of this seemingly-magical plant.
