Small Grant: Farmer-to-Farmer Project for Aquaculture in Kenya

Please click on the logo for more information

Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) project will build upon past Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF) Farmer-to-Farmer efforts in Kenya in order to increase capacity-building for the aquaculture sector. Eleven volunteers will conduct technical trainings on best management practices, integrated framing systems, aquaponics, and other methods that aim to improve fish farming technology. Activities will target small- and medium-scale farmers, but will also benefit host partners that include cooperatives, universities, NGOs, and local government offices. FAU and AwF also seek to increase engagement with disadvantaged groups, including women, landless workers, and the impoverished. By aiding the expansion of aquaculture in Kenya, this project will help alleviate poverty, enhance food security, and improve nutrition and health, contributing to the sustainable economic growth and development of rural communities.
