During 2015, three of our projects were completed and we adopted ten additional ones, which brings the total registered projects to 30. They are in various stages of development and work on some of the recent registrations begin in 2016. Two long-established projects in Nigeria, Maigana and PFPA, are, temporarily we hope, ‘on-hold’ due to difficult situations in that country.
In 2015 we considered about 45 requests for help, nearly all of them project proposals. For a variety of reasons, we cold not pursue the majoirty of these. However, we were able to take a fair number of proposals further and on the basis of fuller information elicited from the enquirers, our project managers decided they should visit 13 of them to evaluate their feasibility of their proposals first hand. Eight of these feasibility assessments were made during 2015 and resulted in six proposals being registered as Bees Abroad projects. The remaining five visits are underway in 2016.
