Meet Eva From the Rwenzori Rural Talent Women Empowerment Project in Uganda.
Our local project leader spoke with Eva this month and Eva told her how her beekeeping training had resulted in a welcome additions to the family:
“During the lockdown I was very busy looking after my apiary very well through feeding the bees by giving them flour, water and natural juice.
This helped my bee to make more honey.
I harvested 16kg which sold and got Ug sh 240,000.
I was able to buy a goat with it’s kids which will help my family income.
Beekeeping has increased my household income and socially it has promoted unity in may family.”
At Bees Abroad we believe it’s about more than just the bees. Within our projects we cover a range of complementary activities. For instance, our new project on Kome Island in Tanzania will plant 1,200 trees to provide forage for the bees, as well as food, cash crops, firewood, shade and timber.
