Delivers boats and fishing equipment to organized groups of low-income fishermen.
Besides the boats, some of the equipment that is given to the fishermen are ice chests, waterproof clothing items, and life vests. The program seeks to help fishermen become sustainable. They are given the boat and the equipment, and they then are in charge of supplying the fuel and maintaining the equipment.
We work with GOAL, a humanitarian response agency, to manage the financial and market areas in order to ensure that the Fishing Villages are successful.
