Toleo Foundation funded project showing great success

Category : Updates

The Toleo Foundation funded project, Aquaculture for nutrition and supplementary income for the rural poor in Sundarban, West Bengal, India, has submitted its progress report for January 2008 to December 2009, to read it click here. 28 farmers were specially trained to produce fish seed for ponds and 72 farmers were trained in pond preparation, fish culture, marketing, and more. All of them are now involved in fish farming. Other success stories demonstrate that the local poor farmers are able to learn and practice scientific fish farming, which means that the project has the potential to provide lessons to other regions of India.

We are deeply appreciative of the support from the Toleo Foundation, whose generous donation has enabled this project to succeed.
