Education systems in East-Africa
Key to quality education is ensuring the gained knowledge provides opportunities for life. In East-Africa, there is often a mismatch between the education provided and the job market requirements. Students lack the practical skills needed to work in the jobs available or to start their own.
In our program, students are trained hands-on in all aspects of sustainable fish farming, enabling them to either start their own business or work for established farms. From farm management to feed production, our activities have provided a hub for learning and capacity building. Those trained have proven to be essential to the program, growing the sector with their new expertise. By working together with the local knowledge institutes, capacity building is supported and long-lasting impact is achieved. Those trained serve themselves as ambassadors and educators, spreading their knowledge among many in their own local community.
