New AwF-Arizona Farmer to Farmer Grant

Category : Updates

AwF and the University of Arizona have been awarded a second project to support Farmer to Farmer assignments to work with small scale aquaculture in Kenya and Mexico.

AwF volunteers will travel to Kenya and Mexico to assist local AwF partners to share techniques for sustainable aquaculture. Special emphasis will be on best management practices with freshwater and brackish water fish culture.

The funds are from the US Agency for International Development.

AwF’s Past-Chairman, Kevin Fitzsimmons, will co-ordinate the project. Registered AwF volunteers, who are also US citizens and interested to assist the project should contact Dr. Fitzsimmons.
