Meet Emmanuel The Fish Farmer
August 2020

Emmanuel is one of our new Peer Educators who is also a keen fish farmer!

Emmanuel Okumu Odongo is 20 years old and a third year student in Fisheries and Aqua Culture Science at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.

Emmanuel’s father deserted him when he was 13. Their mother moved to Mumias town to help with her sister’s small business, buying and selling fish. This gave her an income to support her children.

Emmanuel volunteered with us during our Coronavirus awareness campaigns. We then recruited and trained him as a peer educator and he now supports our young people in fish farming.

He has also done an excellent job managing Nasio’s donation store during the recent floods.

Given his background, Emmanuel has now decided to spearhead and manage Nasio’s fish farming projects working closely with the other young people involved in running the ponds whilst universities are closed due to Covid-19.

Nasio’s first fish-pond, generously funded by The Egmont Trust is now thriving with over 1,100 fish.

Emmanuel is doing a great job of engaging our children positively in fish farming whilst schools are closed until January 2021. They are now working on a second pond. The fish produced will be used to improve the diet of our children and any surplus sold to generate income.

Emmanuel is so happy and blessed to have met Nasio Trust as an organization, and we’re extremely thankful to have him.

Eunice’s Story

My name is Eunice Juma and am 23 years old. I come from a small village called Buchirinya in Mumias Town.

I am a total orphan after the death of both my parents.My childhood wasn’t a good one because I had to be relocated every now and then to different relatives which means I had to change schools too that affected me in one way or the other but the good part of it is that I went through education despite all the challenges.
