Title: One Home Many Hopes – Tilapia and the Sun
One Home Many Hopes (OHMH) is a loving home and soon-to-be-school for orphaned and abandoned girls in coastal Kenya. In order to optimally use and respect our donors’ financial giving we stress the sustainability and self-sufficiency of our facility. Already, 45% of our electricity needs are met by solar panels on the roof of the girls’ home. We are working toward 25% of our operating budget being covered by an onsite tilapia fish farm. This farm provides protein rich food for our children, and, at capacity, will produce 25,000 fish per month to sell to local hotels and restaurants and potentially food for the community as well.
