Fish Farm

For those who’d rather be fishing…

Your Big Hearted Gift takes the ‘teach a man to fish’ anecdote to the next level. It sets up an eco-friendly fish pond in rural Bangladesh and trains a family to use it. It means consistent income, and a permanent nutritious food source for local families, so children can grow up healthy and strong.

The training is especially important for people who can’t read and write and don’t have any land. They can join a savings group, receive basic literacy and numeracy skills and learn how to farm the fish. After the training, they are encouraged to start initiatives to grow their income.

Manpura, Nepal.

After a landslide buried their home, Manpura, her husband and their three children faced five hard years unable to afford seeds for crops. When gifted training, seeds and fresh water access, Manpura planted onions. Her crop made enough income to feed her family for a whole year. Through a Big Hearted Gift, Manpura and her family rebuilt their lives. Her children no longer go hungry, they are healthy and go to school.
