Overview

Entre 2015 et 2020, le programme ACCES Innovation d’Oxfam-Québec a fourni un renforcement de capacités sur la filière moringa à cinq partenaires d’Oxfam du département de l’Artibonite, en Haïti. Ces partenaires — des organisations de femmes et des coopératives composées principalement de femmes — ont pu se positionner sur les principaux segments de la filière (production de feuilles, transformation en poudre et commercialisation), en plus d’explorer d’autres débouchés, comme la transformation de la matière en produits cosmétiques. Cette étude de cas aborde l’originalité, l’efficacité et la portée de l’intervention, en mettant l’accent sur les résultats et les facteurs de succès tels que la capacité de production des ateliers de transformation, le réseautage des partenaires, la valorisation des propriétés nutritionnelles du moringa et l’autonomisation économique et le leadership des femmes.

Between 2015 and 2020 Oxfam-Québec’s ACCES Innovation Program provided five partners with capacity building to develop the moringa value chain in the Artibonite region of Haiti. These women’s organizations and women-dominated cooperatives positioned themselves at different stages of the value chain (leaf production, powder transformation and marketing). They also explored other avenues such as moringa use in cosmetic products. This case study looks at the intervention’s originality, efficiency and scope, detailing the results and success factors such as the workshop’s productive capacity, networking between partners, validation of moringa’s nutritive properties and women’s economic empowerment and leadership. 

The case study is part of a series conducted in the final phase of Oxfam-Québec’s Volunteer Cooperation Program, Program ACCES Innovation, which took place in ten countries from 2015 to 2020.
