Penal home gets aquaponics unit

Tuesday, November 18 2014

After the successful launch of the Digicel Foundation Aquaponics programme earlier this year at the Lady Hochoy School in Arima, several special schools across the country have been the beneficiary of the units.

The Lady Hochoy School in Penal also received a unit on November 8, when the Digicel Foundation along with a team from the Ministry of Food Production, Fisheries Division, visited the school.

On site were Harnarine Lalla, fisheries officer; biologist, Shana Dass; aquaculture assistants Cindy Ramsaran and Navin Sardarsingh; Eustace Phillip, fisheries staffer; and Cindyann Currency, project officer of the Digicel Foundation.

The Digicel Foundation Aquaponics Programme’s main objective is to provide support to special needs schools by introducing this organic system as a vocational skill to the existing curriculum. In addition, the programme will be an alternative income generator for schools and families who provide care and services to people with special needs.

Other centres that will benefit are the Goodwill Industries and Eshe’s Learning Centre in Port-of-Spain; they will receive their units by December.
