A Sustainable Opportunity

A Sustainable Opportunity

We believe one of the strategic paths to positive, sustainable change in Honduras starts with Aquaponics.

 

(You can find the full definition of Aquaponics by clicking here). Aquaponics allows for the creation and implementation of a renewable method of raising healthy fish alongside hydroponically-grown leafy vegetation.

This will substantially provide both food and a practical trade for anyone interested in learnng and maintaining these systems. 

Connect Global's own National Director of Honduras, Jorge Amador, has built 5 systems in La Ceiba over the last year and plans several more in 2018 and beyond. 

To find out More Please Check out the Articles below on Aquaponics

 

To Join us, you can go with us to install the next system, or you can make a donation towards the overall cost of our next project.

Aquaponics Update from Connect Global March 2019

Aquaponics Update from Connect Global March 2019

The Connect Global Team has been investing in Aquaponics since our inception. Our First Official Trip as 'Connect Global' to Cusuna, we built 5 aquaponic systems. We have learned a lot since then, and our friend and partner Jorge Amador has built many more and taught several people his skills as well. We plan to build and facilitate an Aquaponic Training Center in Honduras in 2019.

Aquaponic Update from La Masica Honduras

Aquaponic Update from La Masica Honduras

There are many exciting updates from Honduras and one is concerning the Aquaponic Fish System we set up at the girls home and trade school in La Masica Honduras

This refuge and vocational school is doing wonderful things for their community and one is through the skills of aquaponics'

We received these images and video from, Alison, one of the directors at the home and we wanted to share them with you.

We hope you are as excited about the potential this presents for a sustainable food source as well as an invaluable learning tool to teach a new and unique trade to help empower a new generation in Honduras. 

 Sustainable solutions like Aquaponics, water wells and educational investments in national leaders are opening doors for us to share the good news of Jesus throughout Honduras and around the world. Thank you for your continued support through prayer and financial giving

[CONNECTED COMMUNITY UPDATE]

Here Pastor Alison of La Masica, Honduras holds on of the Tilapia he raised in a new Aquaponic Fish System. 

A new Aquaponic project now exists in a small town called La Masica. It's going to benefit a girls home we support.

Our friend and long time Honduran partner, Jorge Amador, was the main catalyst for getting this project initiated and completed.

They worked hard and got all the supplies they needed from local friends and partners.

This is a wonderful example of the community working together to create practical solutions to support each other.

Billy Chrzan in Honduras has about 10 or so watermelons growing in an Aquaponic system and will be ready shortly. 

Aquaponics is an amazing tool for food production. We have several projects coming up to install new aquaponic growing systems in Honduras and Brazil.  

We are very excited about the life change possible through aquaponics.

Turn Your Pocket Change Into Life Change

Turn Your Pocket Change Into Life Change

One of Connect Global's dear friends has been saving her extra pocket change for an Aquaponic Tilapia Pond. She is about halfway to filling up her 64oz jar and we couldn't be more excited for her and for the life change that will come because of this simple act. 

None of us can change the world on our own, but when we work together we can achieve life change one person at a time. 

One day soon this jar of coins will be converted into a life giving, sustainable project in Haiti, or Honduras and our Friend Patricia will be the one that made it possible. 

You can Turn your Pocket Change into Life Change by filling up your own jar and donating the contents here

We will keep you posted on how this jar of coins makes it's way around the world and makes life better for someone in need. 

Send us a picture of your pocket change and we will post it here. Let's see how much we can do.

Honduras Mission update

This is an update from our friend, Billy Chrzan, Connect Global's NEW Honduras Field Partner. 

We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with Billy and believe that the best is yet to come with our efforts in Honduras through Aquaponics.   


Aquaponic System Built by Billy Chrzan, of Crimson Outreach in Honduras. 

Aquaponic System Built by Billy Chrzan, of Crimson Outreach in Honduras. 

We are branching out and growing quick.

For this we need more teammates and sponsors.

So far we have built systems with the capacity to grow 2800 pounds of food (fish and vegetables) in a growing season...and we have 4 growing seasons here where we live...imagine the mouths that will be reached with quality, healthy, organic food grown with their help.

Due to this increase in systems ready to be built (26 so far) we at Crimson Outreach have teamed up with Connect Global.

The founders of Connect Global have been long time friends and we value their contributions to the needs of the hurting around the world.

Please welcome our new growth and partnership as it is God that set up this great collaboration.

ALSO COMING SOON: 
As briefly mentioned above, we now have 26 systems that are either in design and planning stage, are funded and waiting, are still in the raising funds stage or already built and needing maintained.

26 systems will feed a great multitude of people. Some are small backyard systems and a few are community systems. Please join us as we conquer and cancel out the hunger in our area by teaching them to grow their own healthy vegetables with very little ground space and cost to work with. An Aquaponics system will give new crops year after year for decades to come.
