Fish farming is rapidly growing in Zambia, and Lubasi Home aims to ride this wave of opportunity. With a well-constructed fish pond, not only can we provide skills training to the orphans and vulnerable children we support, but we can also generate income to enhance their welfare. Here’s how you can make a difference:
Lubasi Home: A Sanctuary for Children
Lubasi Home is more than just a shelter. It’s a community project providing residential care for 46 children, having cared for over 1,000 children since its inception. Through various Income Generating Activities (IGAs) such as poultry, craft, and gardening, Lubasi Home helps these children attain education and various skills. However, the existing funds aren’t enough. This is where the fish pond comes into play.
The Fish Pond Project: More Than Just Farming
We’re planning to build a dam liner fish pond, which will serve multiple objectives:
- Skills Training: The children will be trained in fish farming and aquaculture.
- Income Generation: The revenue will directly support the children’s welfare.
- Local Impact: Lubasi Home aims to become one of the local fish biggest suppliers.
Location and Budget
The fish pond will be constructed within Lubasi Home’s premises, ensuring ease of training and monitoring. Here’s the breakdown of our budget:
- Fish Pond: K35,000
- Land (20m by 10m) & Feeding: K5,000
- Deep Freezer: K10,000
- Wire Fence: K20,000
- Labour: K8,000
- Total: K78,000 (equivalent to US $4,333.3)
