Aquaponics Farming on the Border
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Because of a shortage of land and lack of water in the community of Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur, it is difficult to farm. The introduction of an aquaponic system and training will greatly benefit this community.
Short Term Impact
In the short term, the preparation and construction of the aquaponic system in Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur will bring a mild economic benefit to the community as local labor and materials will be used whenever possible.
Long Term Impact
In the longer term, the community will benefit economically as any proceeds from the sales of the aquaponic farm will be reinvested directly in the community. In addition, the villagers will benefit from the training they receive in this new cutting edge technology.
All sponsors of this important project will be listed on The Paros Foundation’s website and in all press related to this project. Visits to these communities can be arranged for sponsors visiting Armenia.
