Sustainability and future plans

Our plan is to train and empower as many youths as possible.During the training we will make available fingerlings and food stuff so that our students can breed catfish during the training.The fish produced during this period will be sold in the local markets.We will empower the trained youths by giving them some quantities of fingerlings to breed and then we will follow them up till they pass through a production cycle.We will seek for grants, and also ask our students to pay a small fee so that we can run the training program.The catfish produced during the period of training will be sold in the local market in order to raise money to run the next training program.

Fishery resources are an important source of proteins, vitamins and micronutrients that are not available in such quantity and diversity either in crops or in other animal products. They represent circa 17% of animal protein consumed by many low-income populations in rural areas. Great idea. Lets support each other everyday. check out my idea on vote and leave a comment on my idea. I will do the same for you everyday, not on my inbox.
