Welcome to Fish on Farms!
We are committed to improving the health and livelihoods among Cambodian farmers, particularly women and children. The Fish on Farms project team is currently developing a scalable, cost-effective model of integrated Homestead Food Production (HFP) to improve nutrition, food security and women’s empowerment in Cambodia. We have completed our first phase and are excited to announce that we are working on the second phase of the project that will reach ~4500 households throughout four diverse provinces. In the second phase, women are self-selecting to participate and we are exploring micro-credit and other options so that women have a greater financial stake in HFP leading to more successful farmers. Additionally, we are offering women options for HFP that include poultry as well as fish and horticulture.
The Fish on Farms project is jointly undertaken by the University of British Columbia and Helen Keller International with financial support from International Development Research Centre (IDRC), www.idrc.ca, and the Government of Canada, provided through Global Affairs Canada (GAC), www.international.gc.gov.
