Fighting poverty, by making cages

Blue Dragon has rescued 56 trafficked children, over the past few years; and most of these kids have come from a sea-side area of central Vietnam.

Getting the kids home is just the beginning. Once they are back with their families, we need to help them return to school or training; help out with material needs (like build them a house); and help the families to become more secure and, ultimately, independently able to look after their children without our help.

To that end, our latest venture is a project with another NGO, called Telefoods, to teach some aquaculture to families living in particular hardship.

Stage 1 has already begun: the families are learning how to make cages in which to raise fish! Here are some pics of what's been happening this week...
