In September, Brighter Brains Institute launched a campaign that raised $1500 to start a Tilapia Pond.
Progress has been very swift - in the photos below you can see the villagers digging the hole for the pond.
The tilapia will be sold to provide tuition fees for the orphans in the village. It will also be available as a high protein food for the school children.
Tilapia is a fish that is indigenous to Africa, and it multiples very quickly. In Uganda it is eaten roasted, boiled, or in a stew with ground nuts.
BBI commends Kanungu Primary School for getting to work on this so quickly
