Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Apiculture In Kakamega North

Beekeeping has been one of the most feared ventures? enterprises that one could venture in to. The Kenya agricultural productivity program KAPP came in through the government to encourage farmers in Kakamega North to engage in the enterprise. Farmers in Kabras took the challenge positively and started Apiculture using the Langstroth bee hive. This bee hive is able to produce over 20 Kgs of pure honey per hive. The project has now been able to help farmers sell their honey that is processed by the Centrifuge marchine. This has made most farmers now break even and now very happy because they can even educate their children.
