Tilapia Pond to help Uganda Orphans

$1,550 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 22 people in 5 months
FULLY FUNDED!  THANKS!  12 percent of children in western Uganda are parentless due to AIDS, malaria, hepatitis, civil war, car accidents, murder, and other misfortunes.

Orphans are the poorest of the poor. The majority end up criminals, prostitutes, or trafficked soldiers and slaves.

They are often illiterate, because no one will pay for their school tuition.

Brighter Brains Institute (BBI), a California nonprofit, has built two secular humanist orphanages in western Uganda, one in Muhokya/BiZoHa, the other in Kanyenze.

In Kanungu - near the Congo border - our plan is to construct a Tilapia Pond to provide funds to support local orphans.

Tilapia is a native African fish that is easily farmed and reproduces quickly.

Tilapia from our Kanungu pond will be sold to provide tuition funds for orphans at Kanungu Humanist Primary School.

Fried tilapia, tilapia soup, and chopped tilapia with groundnuts will be regularly fed to the orphans.

The pond will be 30 meters by 60 meters; Tilapia will fed on greens, corn bran, soybeans and groundnuts; No chemicals will be used.

BBIs mission is to provide education and economic sustainability to our secular humanist communities in Uganda.

The Kanungu Tilapia Pond will generate funds to uplift the entire village.

All donors receive a tax deductible receipt (BBI is a 501c3) and regular updates - with photos - on the construction progress and economic benefits of the tilapia pond.

Donating $65 or more earns you a “Tilapia for Orphans” t-shirt. Just provide your address.
