Fish Ponds: Providing a sustainable source of income and food
Artificial fish ponds offer a great way to support communities in need. They allow intensive fish farming, which provides employment for both fishermen and market sellers. This not only increases income for poor households but also ensures that families have a stable source of food.
With the impact of climate-induced draft and other environmental factors, this is critically important and offers critical security for vulnerable individuals and families alike.
One fish pond can typically sustain 30 trained fishermen and support 20 women to set up a fish selling business. This provides a stable source of income and food, helping families to break the cycle of poverty and build a secure future.
Funding futures and transforming lives
At Islamic Relief, we don’t believe in simply distributing aid to communities in need. We instead fund futures. We aim to give the poorest and most vulnerable people across the world a chance to transform their lives for the better.
