Home >> 3 projects towards sustainability >> Farming, fish farming and sustainable food production

Farming, fish farming and sustainable food production

Farm
There is land close by Eguafo that is available to purchase for farming. Farming would benefit the orphanage by providing them with vegetables for their meals.

Fish farm
Tilapia is a locally sourced fish that is very common in Eguafo. Fish can be relatively expensive to buy so being self sufficient by harvesting fish would reduce expenditure costs. The children would have plenty of nutritious fish for their diet and the remaining fish would be available to sell for a profit.

Sustainable Food Production
We would like to have the materials to process our own palm oil, gari, and juices. This would save a lot of money since we would not have to purchase these items and these products can also be sold for a profit.
