Eastern Uganda is characterized by the presence of fresh water from several rivers and water basins.
The local population lives in poverty, which especially affects the victims of HIV/AIDS, school dropouts and the victims of sexual abuse.
The creation of a stocked fish pond will help 70 direct beneficiaries to supplement their diet, to learn a trade, to buy fish at a competitive price and in two years' time the expectation is that they will generate a profit and be able to manage and grow the project through the training and experience they will have received.
The amount requested of ECA amounts to € 4,500 and includes funds for tools, the construction of the fish pond, the fish seed and feed, transportation and marketing expenses.
