Fish farming progress!
In 2020 Musoke International committed to assisting the Lwanjaba community initiate a fish farming project on Lake Victoria. This project will bring jobs and steady income to the people living there. We are indebted to Charles Mugerwa for leading this effort in Uganda, including obtaining government permits, developing a business plan, organizing training sessions with the community, and overseeing the construction of the first two fish cages. Congratulations to the Lwanjaba community for all the wonderful progress made to date, and we look forward to continuing to work with you on this project!
The Lwanjaba Cooperative Society Limited was formed by Nkumba Bendegere and other Katabi area Citizens who are Guardians of Disadvantaged Children who receive School Fees from Tedd Community Development Foundation [via Musoke International] at Abayita Ababiri. Majority of these Guardians are living at Nkumba, Lwanjaba and Kasenyi and were affected when they were stopped from daily Fishing at Lake Victoria by Authorities Regulating Fishing.
The Citizens have been attending meetings and workshops where they have been trained on how to start Group Projects by contributing small money as a group. Each member has learnt how his money can purchase shares in the group project. When Fish harvest will be done, members will market the fish, and the money got will be used to get them many benefits. Benefits will include giving fees to more children, getting Medical Treatment, Revolving Funds for starting money generating activities and starting value addition ventures as a group. Muwe Enterprise Business Consultants and experts in Fish farming are Training and guiding the citizens in all what there are doing while implementing this Project. The Group has already got a Permit for the Project."
