This will need multiple volunteers to work with the local community to dig a fish pond in our community using local tools. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

The program is mainly about physical participation of the volunteers to work with the local community to dig the fish pond using hand tools like the mattock, spade, hoe, wheel barrow, jerrycans.We are trying to solve the problem of poor feeding in the community by establishing a fish pond that will be used to rear fish for our area. Currently a kilogram of fish from the natural lakes is about 20,000 Uganda shillings which is very costly for a peasant farmer like our people. The program needs multiple volunteers to come and join us to do the work.Program fees will be used for airport pickup and drop back, feeding and accommodation.50% of the fees will be used to buy the construction materials and buying the fish fillets that will be used to start the project. Still, part of the fees will be used to buy the fish supplements.
