Expansion of Ukulhas Hydroponics Project

Previously under the Mangrove For the Future (MFF) project a hydroponics system was developed in the island of Ukulhas as an alternative source for the women of the island and through this improve the income of the families. The project was very successful and engaged several local women who lost their livelihood following the fisheries collapse and the community’s collective shift towards local tourism. However, the project itself did not come without its challenges.

With the contribution from VKM Investments Pvt Ltd, the current project was further upscaled to provide business and marketing training among the women to build their capacities to further develop their skills and the procurement and construction of a storage facility to store tools such as scales, mini spades and produce.
