The finalist team from Kilifi Township Secondary School wants to make fruit leathers to sell in the off season.
In the off season mango growers and sellers make very little money and have a hard time making it financially through the year. In the high season a lot of mangos goes to waste cause due to the large supply compared to the low demand.
Drying mangos into fruit leathers would preserve them for the whole year thus giving mango growers and sellers something to make money on all year round. That is exactly what the team from Kilifi Township Secondary School has done.
