Here is some information about the first semester of 2014 :
- The context remains difficult and despite the situation, Jean Denis was able to produce 125kg of spirulina with only 183m2 out of the usual 500m2 pond area. A large part of the output has been dedicated to social distribution in the neighbourhood (30kg) and to distribution for nutritional purposes (50kg).
- Congratulations to Jean Denis and his team for fighting back and pursuing the effort !
- It must be noted that currently distribution takes place more among adults than children. The reason lies with the conflict. Other NGOs are increasingly on the field and donate PlumpyNut to the children. However, the association “Coeurs Charitables”, which buys spirulina from Kenose- Antenna distributes it for free to the children. Parents come flowing, as they save money this way!
- As a complement to producing spirulina, Kenose Antenna planted 20,000 feet worth of Moringa*, which grows 75kg of leaves every month. The distribution of moringa leaves crushed into powder will take place as soon as the packaging has been approved for commercialisation !
