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.
