I am writing to you because we have a project aquaculture that we want to install in Africa, precisely in Eastern of the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the Tanganyika Lake.
Our main objective is to perform aquaculture of TILAPIA that surely, besides giving a sound financial return, also deliver a measurable social and environmental impact according to the techniques and methods conceived in the project.
We will use a powerful tool for social change (working principally with women). We are convinced that It can support the development of essential life skills, deliver powerful messages, foster confidence and improve self-esteem. It can also help to challenge gender roles and propel women and girls toward better lives.
The world of work is equally unjust. Women perform two thirds of the Eastern Congo’s work and produce half of our food, but earn less income and own less property. Women still carry out the most poorly valued and low paid jobs. 1/4 of them are abandoned for humiliation caused by treated as war arm and victims of violations.
We believe women and girls must have the right to have control over their own bodies, to live free from violence; to have a voice in their community and country; work safely and earn a decent wage. Investing in girls and women brings incredible returns - when a woman earns her own income she re-invests it in her family and community
This is why we have carried out this project in order to give work to women who are victims of various humiliation in Africa and to promote and integrate them into the society of which they feel rejected, as they will the main protagonists in the project: workers, training, commercialization,.. With 175,000 pounds we think that we can cover the necessary costs (Buying fingerlings, building the pre-crushing and magnification tank, obtaining three canoes, one of which is motorized, build shed for offices and various facilities, as well as four large houses for the needy women selected for work and who will be homeless.)
