JusTea strives to create equal opportunities for everyone. Over the last 7 years we have partnered with small scale Kenyan tea farmers, creating more than 200 sustainable jobs. We are now proud to announce a partnership with Thrive to bring health and nutrition to 900 tea pluckers and community members in Nandi.
Through professional training, members of the project will learn to create Life Gardens — organic gardens dense with highly-nutritious crops and medicinal plants like kale and artemisia. Simply by making available the nutrients needed for an individual to thrive this project will reduce malaria cases in the community by up to 75%, and will even create additional income from selling the surplus. When people have everything they need to grow healthy, disease-fighting foods, they have the foundation for reaching their fullest potential. Our target is to raise $6,500.
