Targeting: Food Security

Hogar de Amor, located in Honduras, currently spends $1800 per month to feed their 27 children. $1000 of that is used to purchase nutritious foods such as chicken (protein) and vegetables. Our Aquaponics farm will eliminate that $1000 cost and deliver protein in the form of Tilapia and fresh veggies, saving the home over $12,000 per year.

Aquaponics is a sustainable food system that combines a traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals as fish) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. The farm will breed Tilapia while growing vegetables and fruits in the surrounding area of the pond. The pond itself will fertilize the growing farm, making the whole projecta complete ecosystem.
