About Us

Eden Social Development Foundation has been addressing malnutrition and protein deficiency since 2009 and has witnessed firsthand the high levels of malnutrition and protein deficiency in many of the impoverished rural communities in Southern Africa, especially amongst children and infants.

According to 2008 statistics, out of 10 million children's deaths, 5.6 million can somehow be attributed to malnutrition. Although all cases of malnutrition in South Africa will not necessarily lead to death, they will most likely lead to a decline in health.

Soy Knowledge and Training

Soy Awareness Programme

Our on-site training has been very successful in introducing soy to communities and eliminating the preconceived negative perceptions of soy. We provide visual demonstrations on how to use soy in general household kitchens as part of a comprehensive protein diet.

Why Soy is called the ‘miracle bean’?

Soybean is one of the nature’s wonderful nutritional gifts. It is one of the very few plants that provide a high quality protein with minimum saturated fat.
Soybeans help people feel better and live longer.

Small-Scale Farming

We encourage and assist emerging or small-scale farmers to embrace soy as a rotation crop for maize through our project. Too many small-scale maize growers, this concept appears to be risk-based.
