ZACTS School Fish Farming Project

The ZACTS School is looking to expand the school’s farm to include fish, creating food supply for the school and income generation for the community through sustainable agriculture.
The Problem

The ZACTS School for Orphans and Vulnerable (ZACTS OVC) Children was established in 2012 and currently provides educational support to more than 1,200 students. Although the school is fortunate to receive government aid for teacher salaries, school fees, and educational resources, it does not fully cover the operational expenses. What’s more, government assistance does not extend to covering the expenses required for providing daily meals, which presents a challenge in ensuring the children are nourished every day.

The Project

Since 2018, the ZACTS OVC School has been running a farm on its property to raise funds for the school’s operations and provide nutritious food for the students. Now, they are eager to expand into fish farming . They plan to construct a 20×20 metre fishpond on the school property and start with 3,000 tilapia fingerlings. The school curriculum will be adapted to offer students in grades 8-12 the opportunity to learn about aquaculture, with a focus on fostering entrepreneurship. 

How Your Gift Helps!

With your help we can make a difference in the ZACTS community and today we are asking you to support this exciting new fish farming venture. Your gift will provide nutritious meals for the students and income for the operation of the school. The cost of the project is $7,500 which will also allow restocking of the pond. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of these children, the school, and the community.
