It is great to see an organization like Support Disabled Children Ggaba (SDCG) finding innovative ways through CONGRAVA and other donors to support disabled children, 3 of whom successfully underwent surgery. Fish farming has proven for SDCG to be a sustainable and profitable venture, providing a source of income for the organization.
Fish farming is a form of aquaculture where fish are raised in controlled environments such as ponds, tanks, or cages. It can be a profitable business when managed effectively, and it offers several benefits. Some of the advantages of fish farming include:
- Income generation: Fish farming is providing a consistent source of income for Support Disabled Children Ggaba. By selling the fish they raise, they have generated revenue to support the surgical needs and aftercare of the children.
- Nutritional support: Fish has a valuable source of protein and essential nutrients. By engaging in fish farming, the organization can also provide nutritious food for the children they support, promoting their overall health and well-being.
- Vocational training: Fish farming can serve as a vocational training opportunity for the disabled children. By learning the skills involved in fish farming, they can develop valuable expertise and potentially find employment opportunities in the future.
- Environmental sustainability: Well-managed fish farming practices can have a lower environmental impact compared to traditional fishing methods. By practicing sustainable fish farming techniques, the organization can contribute to the conservation of aquatic resources.
Overall, integrating fish farming into their income generation activities showcases the innovative and sustainable approach taken by Support Disabled Children Ggaba. It not only supports the children’s immediate surgical needs but also helps create a long-term, self-sustaining model to support their ongoing aftercare and well-being.
