The Fish Farm Program

Nigeria

The Fish Farm Project empowers women to become automatically economically independent to be able to increase their household income by 60%, through simple training’s in fish farming.

The Problem

80% of the population of the people in Nigeria tills the soil for their livelihood based on subsistence agriculture. Women play a major role in the production, processing and marketing of food crops such as cassava, potatoes, yam and maize. The system of smallholder agriculture practiced by women is mainly rain-fed and characterized by low land and low labor productivity. With one planting season per year, smallholders witness exceptionally low agricultural yield and income. This has exacerbated food insecurity and rural poverty for women and children.

 

Solution

The People and Planet Life Foundation Team (PPLF) Initiated the Fish Farm Project. The project empowers women to become automatically economically independent to be able to increase their household income by 60%. Through simple trainings in fish farming and creation of cooperative fish farm businesses.  

 

Through our “Learning by Doing-Rural Women in Fish Farming” training curriculum, which contains 80% practical training on fish farming and 20% class work section on business and management. Enables women beneficiaries have full ownership and see the project as a full time business. 

 

To Date we have trained 2,218 rural women, Established 17 community fish farms. 1708 of the women trained has established their own fish farm business and moved to scale. 

Climate Change Advocacy Program

Nigeria

Our climate change advocacy program uses radio and television drama to inform smallholder farmers on climate change adaptation and mitigation. Smallholder farmers know little about the effects of climate change and the risk associated with it. They can only adapt and mitigate this issue if only they become aware of what climate change is and its effect.

Family Garden Project

Nigeria

Our Family garden project enables rural families grow rich gardens that supplies them with the average food they require to take care of their household.

Agricultural Small Scale Investment Loan Program

Nigeria

Our Small Scale Enterprise Investment Loan Program enable women have access to small money to scale up their agribusinesses. 90% of small scale businesses in agriculture are run by women. Accessing funds to grow their business is always difficult for mostly rural poor women.

OUR TEAM

The People and Planet Life Foundation is a rural non-governmental organization that promotes zero poverty and hunger society for rural women through entrepreneurship education and establishment of farm ventures.
