Mr Andrew Kitamirike, the marketing manager of Bongobongo Uganda stated that the Dewilo fish farm is just one of the many projects they have within Uganda and he pledged to support the Dewilo fish farm by providing inputs such as fish feeds, free training for the community and encouraged the youth to embrace the tree-planting drive and to learn from the fish farm because they will be able to earn a living.

He requested the government not to levy taxes on animal feeds as this will hike the costs of operation for farmers.

While officially handing over the Dewilo farm project and the donated items which included fish feeds, tree seedlings, solar powered security cameras, Mr Enyang Alex deputy director of research, vetting and profiling in the office of the President encouraged the locals to utilise the project to gain knowledge on fish farming to better their lives

The LC 1 chairperson Amuca, Mr Walter Okabo; “the is a pioneer community project and residents are very grateful to Bongbongo Uganda for gifting them Dewilo fish farm. He believes the youth will be the greatest benefactors because they will be employed, learn, and possibly set up their own fish ponds.

“The fish farm is going to bring us tourists from other villages that need to learn fish farming, further adding that the nutrition issues will be tackled since fish will be affordable and readily available within the community.”

He concluded by urging more companies to not only take money from their customers but to also give back just as Bongobongo Uganda has done.
