Through this project, we all hope to gain a sense of personal satisfaction for helping others. That is going to be the greatest reward by far for all of us. We also hope to improve ourselves in each of our weak aspects, such as procrastination. We hope not only to help the world, but also improve ourselves while pursuing this project.
Hamza was born in 1965 in Birshi village. He is married to two wives, and has fourteen children. Hamza still resides in Birshi, a small village located in Bauchi State, Nigeria. In Birhshi, Hamza is a local farmer, with no skill but farming. With the little he has, Hamza sponsored one of his children through secondary school. Hamza worked to continue sponsoring his childrens' education, but he could not afford it. Hazma was later empowered by LI-CGLAO, where he was introduced to fish farming.
Hamza is one of the fish farming project participants of LI-CGLAO.
