Challenge

Ninety percent of families depend on agriculture to survive in rural Malawi, where soils are depleted and rainfall is erratic. Plagued by periods on drought and flooding - the majority of children must go to sleep hungry.

Solution

This project provides ten families with home Aquaponics systems. These easy to operate systems combine fish farming and hydroponics, use much less water than traditional agriculture, and do not contribute to climate change. This project gives struggling families access to nutritious food - both vegetables and high protein fish - throughout the year.

Long-Term Impact

Poverty will be reduced in the community, as these families have access to surplus food to sell after filling their own needs.
