After nine years, AwF consolidates activities
Nine years after its inception, Aquaculture with Frontiers (UK) is consolidating all of the activities of the not-for-profit organization within the international branch of AwF.
The AwF trustees have closed the charity in the United Kingdom, and all remaining AwF (UK) funds have been transferred to AwF.
Michael New remains founder and patron of AwF, which is managed by a 15-member international board of directors. M.C. Nandessha serves as chairman.
AwF (UK) and AwF have always shared management of the charity using a common website and a common system of approving and monitoring field projects. The main difference between the two was that the income of AwF (UK) was raised by activities in the UK and a number of other European countries, while funds raised in the rest of the world were channeled through AwF. Each organization supported specific AwF field products.
AwF (UK) is a small organization that is built on people donating their time for free, and New agreed that it was best to consolidate into the organization in North America, said Roy Palmer, AwF director.
