Real-World Application in Education and Development

The first of two projected aquaponics greenhouses at Amún Shéa Center for Integrated Development is well on the way to becoming reality. Once both are in full production, we will maintain Amún Shéa students in fish and veggies all year around, as well as a bit of over-production for the local market.

While one aquaponics greenhouse is requested through GlobalGiving, the other was approved by our friends and partners of GlobeMed, from the University of Michigan. We certainly hope to be able to build the second one upon completion of the first and build gradually into full production.

Aquaponics production has been incorporated into the study plan for Amún Shéa students, in all grade levels, with an emphasis on nutrition, alternative production and measures to offset climate change.

The final design structure was a product of student investigation and design. A modular construction method was determined. This method is energy efficient in that no electric soldering is required, as well as creating a building which may be moved or modified without great effort or equipment, as all of the components are bolted or screwed together.

Our friends from South Korean Agency for International Cooperation, KOICA, have agreed to seek a food processing expert to place with Amún Shéa as a volunteer, which will elevate the project to higher levels.

We hope that each and every one of you join with us in this adventure of creating new productive options and in forming young people with the attitude and ability to change their world for the better. Please spread the word; let´s get this dream fulfilled.
