Fish and Veggies for Improving Nutrition

Cucumbers ready for the picking
Cucumbers ready for the picking

Amún Shéa students in El Salvador are improving their nutrition through raising Tilapia fish and growing vegetables for the school cafeteria. Through several years of experience they have honed their green thumbs and even gotten into the kitchen to learn how to prepare a well-balanced and nutritious meal.

The Tilapia fish farming is a recent addition, beginning just 2 years ago with a bathtub sized "pond" as a first grade project. In 2014, the project grew with the reconditioning of a natural pond and the purchase of over three thousand fingerlings. The students are still enjoying the fruits of that project, with fish included at least once a week in school lunches.

They are looking forward now to combining these two activities with the aim of making both much more efficient and less vulnerable to the ever increasing abrupt changes in weather patterns. The amount raised to date does not allow a full implementation of the Aquaponic project. Nevertheless we are moving forward as best able. 

Thank you for your support. Please share this project with your friends and let´s push this forward together.
