With the financial support of BKB Charity, an exciting and sustainable fish breeding project has been started for the malnourished rural population in Uganda. “Samaki” (Suaheli for fish) is the name of the project developed by the Enactus Aachen e.V. student organisation at the RWTH Aachen. In a regeneratively and sustainably operated plant, a clever water cycle allows fish to be bred and salads and vegetables to be grown at the same time. The plant can be built using materials available locally and functions independently of running water and any other local infrastructure.
It has just been successfully commissioned and handed over to the village people. An abundant harvest of fish and vegetables can now be expected in a few months’ time. Further plants for the impoverished population are already in preparation.
