Summary

Fish can help solve many challenges in the Horn of Africa. It can feed hungry and malnourished people, and generate income and livelihood opportunities if used properly. Today, much of the fish is wasted, due to a lack of knowledge and skills. FairFishing aims to change this by initiating a portable 'No Waste, All Taste' kitchen - which will not only serve a delicious, free soup to those in need, but also teach them how to utilize fish waste to cook a cheap and healthy meal themselves.

Challenge

In the Horn of Africa, millions go hungry every day. The region is plagued by droughts, intensified by climate change, with devastating effects on food security. Nevertheless, the coastline is full of fish - a nutritious and reliable food source, which has traditionally been overlooked. Many still don't know how to use fish, and a lot of it tends to end up as waste. Therefore, people's sparse economic resources, as well as precious natural resources, is also wasted.

Solution

We are working to stop food waste and malnutrition by teaching people how make food out of what is currently wasted. Our chef will travel around with a portable kitchen, serving delicious soup made from fish head and bones that would otherwise be thrown away, while teaching the locals how to cook the tasty soup themselves. That way, a family can turn their own fish waste into valuable nutrition - enabling them to cook an entire extra meal at no additional cost.

Long-Term Impact

Increasing knowledge and intake of fish - and ensuring that its potential is maximized by using the waste as well - will in the long run improve nutrition and food security. Additionally, we aim to inspire locals to use waste to create livelihood opportunities, such as setting up their own small street kitchens cooking fish soup from head and bones, and thus creating an income for their families. Our program will reach 1.500 people directly, with ripple effects even further.
