WHY A CWE AGRICULTURAL MISSION TRIP?
“Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.”
In 2013 CWE had the privilege of partnering with ABWE and MorningStar Fishermen to construct an Aquaponic Ministry Outreach Training Center at the Village of Light Blind Center in Togo, West Africa, and a solar powered Aquaponic facility in the remote bush village of Bodje, also in Togo, West Africa. The two Aquaponic facilities are approximately two hours apart and serve two completely different economically challenged communities.
Today both facilities are completely run by Togolese nationals. At the training facility they’ve had the privilege of teaching other Togolese, as well as individuals from Cameroon and Benin about Aquaponic farming.
We trust that not only will this initiative revolutionize farming techniques throughout Africa and help supplement diets with high protein fish, along with fresh, highly nutritious vegetables year-round, but will also be a wonderful tool to help facilitate the “spiritual needs” of people as well!
