Student-organized fundraiser for AwF at AQUA 2012 in Prague
Category : Updates
AwF director David Little has coordinated with European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and World Aquaculture Society (WAS) student groups to organize a raffle with proceeds to benefit AwF’s mission of alleviating poverty through aquaculture.
The students wanted to have a clear use for the funds raised and have selected the 1000 day movement to draw attention to the importance of nutrition in early childhood development.
Benedikt Frenzl, president of the EAS students and a student at the University of Stirling, created a flyer to promote the raffle and the objective of the fundraiser – The 1000 Day Initiative: Making the link between aquaculture and the vulnerable. The slogan being used is Fish – Our contribution to a healthier nutrition for children. A copy of this flyer will be in each delegate’s conference bag.
Please support this great initiative as generously as you can afford, and thank these students for rising to such a challenge.
