Summary

 

Makoko is a huge slum in the heart of Lagos, Nigeria. It is also a fishing community, this project would empower the fishing community in the area with better equipment to increase their fishing yield and boost their income.

Problem

We discovered that the fishermen still use crude fishing tools and equipments that are worn out. They use leaky boats which pose a risk to their lives and poses a huge danger to them while fishing. This use of poor tools affects their fishing productivity and production. They toil longer hours fishing with little yield.
