OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER COMMUNITIES SUFFERING FROM FOOD INSECURITY WITH AQUAPONICS TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE NUTRITION AND CURB WORLD HUNGER
We utilize a long-term educational impact model focused on paying the knowledge forward across future generations. By constructing environmentally sustainable organic food systems that require no soil – families can produce a faster harvest of pesticide-free and nutrient-rich outputs such as vegetables, fruits, and herbs – while using significantly less water, space, and energy than traditional agriculture.
What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a system in which fish and their waste provide fresh nutrition for plants that grow entirely in water. It’s completely organic – no pesticides, no soil – just plants and water. This ancient farming technique is perfect for solving modern food security problems. Aquaponics is a highly productive, symbiotic, affordable, and sustainable farming solution.
Numbers That Make A Difference
less water used
than traditional agriculture
due to fresh fish bacteria
used with no soil required
The Koya Approach
economically disadvantaged communities with limited access to healthy food and scarce resources.
with an organization, school, co-op program, or other avenues in the community to build aquaponics systems.
and train local support staff to be aquaponics experts in building and maintaining the farming systems.
and implement methods and materials that will ensure the systems flourish as sustainable food sources.
a “disciple” culture among the entire community, paying the knowledge forward to create a generational ripple effect of food self-sufficiency.
Expect big impact in 2018. In addition to our ongoing projects in the United States, we are expanding globally into five countries – building over 60 training centers and educating at least 6,000 children and adults.
DID YOU KNOW? If only 10% of the graduates applied the knowledge learned into their communities, an additional 2,400 family members would have access to nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables.
In addition to our ongoing impact in the United States as a California-based 501(c)(3) non-profit, we’ve established a 2-year fundraising goal of $2.4 MILLION to support global expansion into five countries – building over 60 training centers and educating at least 6,000 children and adults.
