Promote socially cohesive and economically resilient communities in Africa
The JS Acceleration Fund raises donations for the John Schrooten Foundation. The non-profit goal of the Foundation is to increase the capability to act independently. The Foundation facilitates and promotes good practices around healthy nutrition, sustainable agriculture and related economic activities and entrepreneurship. The goal is more socially cohesive and economically resilient communities. The supported enterprises or projects adhere to a triple P bottom line (people, planet, profit). The Foundation makes sure an enduring impact is made even when support is gradually diminished and eventually stopped.
Our flagship project centers around the reintroduction of the versatile Moringa tree in the Karatu district in rural Northern Tanzania. There we work with schools, women and farmers to improve their lives by providing training and hands-on assistance. This results in better nutrition and farming practices as well as generate income through products derived from Moringa (powder, oil, soap, ...).
