Project Description

 

A Gift To Africa is a women empowerment social enterprise that works directly with women in Malawi,  Zimbabwe, and Kenya to source wild-harvested, high vitamin and mineral natural ingredients that are imported into the USA and re-packaged and/or manufactured in a commercial kitchen in Destin, Florida into consumables. 

Our Mission at A Gift To Africa is to provide products with healthy ingredients to our American consumers while sustainably empowering women in Africa.

A Gift To Africa serves consumers who are looking to feel better by incorporating healthy natural ingredients into their diet from a brand that provides meaning and sustainability.  Currently, we are using the baobab fruit ingredient and the Moringa superfood as our signature ingredients.  Our products include the Baobab Fruit powder and Lemonade, Baobab seasonings, Moringa powders and teas.

 

The Problem:

  Our primary sales at A Gift To Africa have been through Farmer's markets and events. Because of Covid19, the reliance on these markets has proven not to be sustainable.  Our sales have slumped because our major markets have remained closed.  Wholesale has also slowed down.  This slow down has adversly affected the women in Africa we work with, thus we have not been able to fulfill our mission.

Our Solution:

In order to alleviate the problem of relying on markets and events, we are diversifying our market base.  One immediate solution is to strengthen our online presence.  We plan to have a more robust website to sustain sales and engage help to advertise optimally.  Currently, we have a website using the Godaddy Web Builder which is not robust and does not accommodate plug-ins that help with sales. Replacing the current website with a more robust website will enable us to replace and increase the income that we have lost through markets.

Our Ask:

We are seeking your support to help us raise $3,000.00 to help us pivot our sales to online so that we can keep selling and continue selling our products and to empower our women partners in Africa. We are asking to build a better website and also to help with social marketing online.

We will be spending the funding as follows:

New E-Commerce website:      $1500

Consultation and Marketing:   $1500

 

We have some really cool, fun rewards for you to take part in on our campaign page below! We are offering discounts on our nutritious products and also a session with our CEO for those interested in doing business in Africa.  

Thank you so much for your support in helping A Gift To Africa continue empowering women in Africa through healthy products!

Super Powders Bundle

 

A great way to try our 2 ingredients, the baobab fruit powder and the moringa superfood. Both these powders are 100% and contain high nutritional values.

WHAT IS BAOBAB FRUIT POWDER?

Baobab is the super-fruit of Africa's 'Tree of Life'. The only fruit in the world that dries on the branch, we simply de-seed and sieve to create a natural powder that is high in fiber and rich in vitamin C.
The pulp of the baobab fruit is high in antioxidants and contains:

Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Protein, fiber

Baobab Powder is a rich source of vitamin C (a single dose provides 33% of your daily requirement), which supports a healthy Immune system, energy release and Skin. It is also almost 50% fiber (two thirds soluble and one third insoluble, making it a powerful prebiotic) and contains more antioxidants than any other whole fruit.

Use 1⁄4 - 1⁄2 teaspoon with 8 oz warm water, once or twice daily

Sprinkle on fruit, cereal, yogurt and pancakes,*Bake into bread, brownies, cakes and cookies, *Stir into porridge, desserts, soups and stews, *Shake into water, juice, coconut water and salad dressings, *Blend into smoothies, sauces, shakes and dips

WHAT IS MORINGA?

Moringa is a natural leaf/powder from the Moringa ‘Miracle’ Tree that is found mostly in tropical (warm) countries of the world. Moringa has been used as a traditional medicine in the communities that it is found.

Moringa Powder is a rich source of plant protein (25%), contains 24% fiber and is a source of 5 essential vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium and vitamins A, E & K. High in antioxidants.
*These nutrients support a wide range of health benefits, including:

  • Reduction of tiredness & fatigue

  • Muscle growth

  • Healthy skin

  • Immune function

    Do not boil Moringa because it reduces its effectiveness, instead add the powder after heating the food or drink of your choice.

    Use 1⁄4 - 1⁄2 teaspoon with 8 oz warm water, once or twice daily

    Mix in smoothies or drink by blending in one teaspoon of Moringa powder.
