The Idea

The vision of the Harambee Aquaponics Project is to install a fully-functioning aquaponics system at Harambee Youth Kenya that will combat two of Nairobi, Kenya's greatest social problems: unemployment and nutritional inequality.

The Specifics

Harambee Youth Kenya is the home of 17 incredible teenagers from disadvantaged backgrounds. We are Harambee USA, Inc., the umbrella organization that sponsors and facilitates the Center. Our goal is to positively impact their futures. An aquaponics system will provide food security for the HYK community, as well as, an education in sustainable agricultural methods. Aquaponics is a close-looped system that connects hydroponic grow beds with a fishery in order to replicate a self-sustaining, miniature ecosystem that produces food for consumption. Our mission is to educate these young men so that they may reach out and aid their community's development at large.
