This was the first Bees Abroad initiative in Cameroon, working with our Cameroonian partner, BERUDA, in North West Cameroon.
The Akwaya communities live in extremely remote villages in the rainforests, isolated by floods seven months each year. Beekeeping helps provide income, and provides nutrition, particularly for children.
Ote village is situated at the end of the only road into the Akwaya rainforest region. Bees Abroad has trained and equipped beekeepers, supporting them to transport and sell honey in neighbouring towns.
