Results: Final Report

Thanks to the support of the GO community, funds were provided to support a vocational training program targeting former child soldiers. This grant enabled Children of Peace to develop a vocational training program for 42 former child soldiers and provide these youth with the knowledge and skills needed to raise and harvest farm raised fish. The sale of the catfish and tilapia is generating income to sustain CPU and the program. The pond has also been a tourist attraction with over 100 visitors (both local and international) coming to learn more about how to create and run a successful fish farm.
