Plan Tilapia was started in Honduras in 2015 and involves excavating large ponds and farming fish, in this case Tilapia. The fish are bought as fry and fed over the space of a few weeks; once large enough they will be sold in the local markets with proceeds being split between reinvestment into the next Plan Tilapia, the community and the school. Each Plan Tilapia costs £300 ($500) to implement.
10 families benefit from Plan Tilapia as of December 2016 meaning their children’s secondary school, college and university costs can be sustainably covered in the future. We aim to increase this to 60 families during 2017 and 2018.
