The HOPE Boat Building and Fishing Enterprise in Dominica is a cooperative of some 8 local fisherfolk in Layou / Dominica. They've recently approached the Honorary Consul in Dominica in their quest to procide a sustainable service to their community AND a reliable income to their family.

We are very happy to be able to support their initiative with the purchase of processing tools for the fish as well as packaging and storage infrastructure.
