The project will provide 200 women through 20 organised groups with Materials to construct 20 fish pond and 1000 catfish fingerlings per group.Women farmers will be provided with fishing nets and necessary tools and equpiments. They will be provided with training on fish rearing ,fish feeds production ,value addition and and marketing. Extension services will be provided to these farmers to ensure success of the project.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 200 women with necessary knowledge and skills in fish farming to raise them from poverty while improving the livelihoods of their families and community at large.Project will also enhance food security and nutrition in the community.
