Hekenofom and Amomaso-Adom Beekeepers

HEKENOFOM (“HOPE”) and AMOMASO-ADOM BEEKEEPERS

GHANA

#worldbeeday

Give hope to Hekenofom Beekeepers in a rural community in the Eastern region of Ghana. The group which includes 10 women, 7 youth and 2 members with disabilities, will build on foundations of early training by Bees Abroad and locally sourced equipment to ensure a sustainable beekeeping co-operative. They will sell quality honey and added value products in Asesewa, a vibrant, busy market town. The project benefits extend to food security, better nutrition, and increased family income for medical care, house repairs and education.

PROJECT COST: £7,800

 

 We are also offering the opportunity to sponsor the Amomaso-Adom Beekeeping Association, a community a short journey from Berekum town in the Bono region of Ghana. All 50 members of the group are farmers; some also farm cocoa in addition to the small subsistence plots for growing staples. 

Nearly half the group has experience of honey hunting, a destructive practice giving poor honey and attracting a low price locally. With sponsorship we can change this, leading to bee colonies with hives to call home, a fair market price for quality honey, and improvement to the environment through encouraging the planting of forage tree saplings. The risk of bush fires and tree destruction resulting from taking wild honey can become a thing of the past. 

We are seeking to support the group with apiaries from hive kits the members will assemble and a library of protective equipment. Additionally, the provision of small scale processing equipment and an added value course for some of the women who are very motivated at the idea of market sales will give a robust base for a sustainable business.  

If this project becomes oversubscribed we will use your donation to support similar projects in Ghana
