In September 2004, KADETFU signed an agreement for partnership with CORDAID of The Netherlands to undertake the project entitled â€œEconomic Empowerment of Smallholder Fishers and Farmers through Alleviating Pollution of Lake Victoria Watersâ€. This has come in after KADETFU realizing the adverse environmental impacts in the lake contributed by fishers and farmers due to many factors accelerating poverty among the community in the lake basin. To reduce the gravity of this situation, the project had and still has a final goal, which is to restore the degraded lake environment that will increase the activities to generate income to support the livelihood of small fishers and farmersâ€™ communities on a sustainable basis. On the way to attain the final goal, the project is still on the same track as afore planned.
