The recent famine in Kenya has taught a difficult lesson. Just like the stock market, Kenyans must DIVERSIFY so Fr. Riwa has decided to build fishponds. This way he will not be totally dependent on grains. Small fishponds have proved very successful in other parts of Africa, especially for raising tilapia. The process is inexpensive, very productive and the fish provide vitamins critical to a healthy diet.
The Adrian Dominican Sisters organized an Environmental Club at St. Clare and one of the duties of the club members will be the care of the fishponds. Here the Environmental Club is at Meru University learning the skills necessary to be good fish farmers.
