We acknowledge and value the continued support given to the rural women of Budongo to strengthen their livelihood income through beekeeping.
Our campaign to Support 1000 Young Mothers with Beehives in Uganda has so far recieved $1,572.8 USD that has enabled us to produce more than 110 hives and distributed to more women.
In our most recent harvest we managed to get additional, 12kg of honey.
We have managed to recruit our own youth we trained as full time staff to produce bee equipment for increase honey production, this was becuase other people were willing to buy we had to increase production.
Also we look ahead to mobilize more funds to acquire modern packaging materials, honey processing machine to enable us market well packed and quality honey to meet the national and international levels of quality.
We continue to be profoundly impressed by your kind support towards the young mothers of Budongo Women Enterprise.

In September 2019 Budongo Women Bee Enterprises (BUWOBE) was one of the projects competing in the Global giving accelerator programme an online crowd funding platform, generous people from around the world supported the project with $1,408 which transformed to $1045 after the transfer charges are deducted. The crowd campaign fund is to support 1000 women with 5 bee hives each in Budongo Sub county Masindi District in Uganda. To date 50 bee hives have been produced and ready for installation. Thank you, our partners.
Progress to date:
The beehives have been produced with very little labor cost thus enabling us to have more boxes.
The previous beehives installed are almost ready for harvest and I want to assure you they are doing very well.
Bee hives project is the way to go for rural women around the forest reserves and it going to be a lucrative business for rural people in Uganda.
Timber cost have gone high due to high restriction by the forest authority and heavy rainfall during this season.
We have more members who still need hives and require more beehives.
