One of the primary ways that we want to serve the
Children’s Home and eventually the surrounding communities is through aquaponics. Aquaponics is combining aqua culture, which is raising fish in tanks, and hydroponics which is growing vegetables without soil, and combining them into one self-sustaining system. The beauty of this system is that it allows us to provide nutrient rich plants and a sustainable protein source for the children of the orphanage regardless of the soil conditions or rainfall.
Ultimately we want to teach this process to others and help them build these systems in their homes and villages, completely revolutionizing these remote areas. This project will bring a more balanced diet to the lives of the children and potentially bring income and purpose to many families in the town of Jimani and surrounding areas.
