My vision for the world in 20 years time is that women and vulnerable groups in rural Uganda have the access and skills to generate a sustainable income and have enough healthy food to feed their families.
People in rural areas will have access to land and the know-how to produce healthy and protein-rich foods on their land. There will be enough knowledge and resources to sustain a healthy diet and prevent malnourishment.
I am teaching fish farming skills and technical know-how to local women groups and communities in rural Uganda. I am part of the project Rural Aquaculture Development – a community basic organisation which works together with Coventry University in the UK.
As part of the program, local ponds are build which are managed by a single family or community groups together. Everyone in the community helps with the building of the ponds.
Training in fish farming provides the skills to ensure food security and sovereignty.
