Florence, 41, (pictured above) from Zambia received training from our partner, the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The sisters have worked in Zambia for over 20 years, and provided Florence with training in fish farming, giving her tools and some starter fish.  Florence dug a pond, tended to her fish and then began selling them at market.

Thanks to your support and Florence’s determination, something as small as the size of your thumb – a tiny tilapia fish – became something amazing: a future for her children.

If you are not able to attend the briefing, please use the materials by clicking the link below. Feel free to share the resources in your parish to let everyone know how they can get involved this Lent Fast Day.
