We are very excited to announce that we got a new fund: 30.000 Rand from the World Child Fund. The World Child Fund (http://www.worldchildfund.nl/) is a Dutch NGO supporting projects worldwide improving the welfare of children.
The money will be used to build new grow beds, just like the ones you read about in a previous blog. Next to the additional monthly profit which will be invested in the children’s welfare, the extra materials will enable the children to be more involved in the project and learn about plants and fish. In the coming months, the Belhar Centre will provide Pure Good Foods with vegetables and herbs, running continuously to prove the concept of Aquaponics. This new fund is the first step into making the system profitable and stimulating the educational and social benefits!

Next week, we will be signing some papers to finalise the establishment of the Non-Governmental Organisation “Beleaf”. When we are an official NGO, we can more easily raise funds, oversee the project and hopefully help many more children!
