CHANGING THE GAME: Vanessa Zommi

WHEN HER mother was diagnosed of diabetes, 21-year-old Vanessa Zommi set out to find alternative treatments to keep her mother healthy.

She soon discovered the medicinal moringa oleifera tree which grew in her region, and discovered that the moringa leaves could reduce blood sugar levels to treat diabetes among other medicinal qualities.

She partnered with moringa farmers who supplied her with the leaves and processed the leaves into moringa tea which she put into tea bags.

Emerald Moringa, the company she founded, sells this tea across Cameroon.
