4 Hunger is the gravest single threat to the worlds public health (WHO) Mortality due to malnutrition – 58 % of total mortality in 2006 (WHO)

5 THE BEST SOLUTION SPIRULINA

6 What is Spirulina? A simple, one-celled form of (blue green) algae that thrives in warm, fresh-water bodies. A Super food! It contains the most remarkable concentration and combination of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb % protein Only requires sunlight and water to grow – i.e. Inexpensiv to produce in tropical climates

7 FIVE KEY ASSETS It is cheap It is effective Relatively simple process – low investment cost Provides income Local business

8 The Braveheart Project Generate awareness about Spirulina among local people and educate them how to produce it. Provide global market possibilities of Spirulina to improve job opportunities in the villages involved in the project.

9 HOW? We believe in helping people to help themselves Participation – marginalized people are involved in identifying the problems they face. Empowerment – people who truly participate in their own development are permanently strenghtened. Involvement of women – helps in poverty alleviation Sustainability – a long term approach that seeks to understand and respect local conditions. Important to Ensure that the natural resources and the environment of the people are protected and sustained.

10 Stage 1: Procurement of seed culture and standardiztion in laboratory. Stage 2: Collection of interested individuals and NGOs to install small scale industries.

11 Once grants are anounced Create awareness Building large farms Farms with training facilities Providing free Spirulina Create model village Create the market

12 Women as active participants of the farm Spirulina tanks Collecting the harvest Wet slurry is washed and collected Removing the moisture

13 Collecting the harvest, maintaining the parameters, weighing the biomass Various methods of pond construction Oval shaped ponds Huge indoor ponds round cemented ponds

14 Spirulina Cultivation essentially consists of 4 major steps Development of inoculam Development of inoculam Culturing the Spirulina Culturing the Spirulina Seperation & washing of the bio-mass Seperation & washing of the bio-mass Drying or dehydration of bio-mass Drying or dehydration of bio-mass

15 The farm is an environmentally sound green food machine. The size and complexity of a Spirulina farm depends on the quantity needed, the number of emergency victims to aid, the natural resources available, climate and economic infrastructure Spirulina can be easily mixed with yoghurt or fruit juices, or added to salads and soups. It may also be available primarly in tablet forms.
