Challenge

Fishermen account for 90% of those affected by the Tsunami in India. With their boats and nets destroyed, their source of income has stopped and their debts are mounting. If they are given boats and nets, they will be able to help themselves.

Solution

Sponsor a fishing boat and nets for $360. Each boat provides food and income for 4-5 Indian families who have suffered since the tsunami hit.

Long-Term Impact

By providing 100 boats and nets, this project will help up to 5,000 families in India! Fishing is a source of food and income for coastal villages in India, and these supplies will allow fishermen to begin rebuilding their lives.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
