UK: British High Commission team visits site of forthcoming aquaponics centre

British High Commission (BHC) officials this week visited the National Vocational and Rehabilitation Centre for Persons with Disabilities (NVRCPD), which will serve as the site for a proposed aquaponics project.

The country’s Resident British Commissioner Lindsy Thompson, Deputy High Commissioner within the BHC Charley Williams, and the BHC’s Political and Projects Officer Kadeem Joseph, toured the Factory Road location on Wednesday.

Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in January, the BHC has been working very closely on the project with the Department of the Blue Economy and the NVRCPD.

NVRCPD Director Regan Calliste expressed his enthusiasm for the BHC-funded project through which 20 differently-abled individuals will be trained in the construction and operation of aquaponics systems. They will also benefit from the ensuing sale of produce and fish.
