Project Report | Jul 19, 2018
HoneyAID launched in the Philippines & more!

By Sam | IsraAID Philippines Fellow

HoneyAID

IsraAID is proud to announce the establishment of the HoneyAID program in Ormoc City, Philippines. By teaching women to manage bees, produce honey, and market their products, HoneyAID is designed to economically empower low-income women.

For the past two weeks, Tim, an American-Israeli Beekeeper from Kibbutz Sha’ar HaGolan, has been conducting an intensive beekeeping training for a group of 20 women. Following the training, each woman will receive two hives of Apis Mellifera Honeybees to care for and maintain, under the supervision of IsraAID.

From Nepal to Ecuador and around the world, women facing disasters and dire economic circumstances have regained control and confidence in the management of their lives through the HoneyAID beekeeping program. As Tim frequently teaches, “you do not just keep bees - you are now beekeepers - and this is something that cannot be taken away from you.”

Awareness-raising in schools

In late June, IsraAID Philippines facilitated two Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Anti-Human Trafficking (AHT) awareness programs in high schools in Libhu and Maasin City. IsraAID staff led four interactive stations ranging from discussions of relevant case-studies, collaborative games about referral pathways, and activities for identifying red flags. Through these focused approaches, students were taught to appropriately evaluate and respond to situations of HT and GBV by identifying threats and referring to available support systems and resources.

Humanitarian Fellows

IsraAID Philippines has been fortunate to welcome two Humanitarian Fellows this summer. Sam of the Claremont Colleges in Los Angeles and Emmy of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, have engaged first-hand in programming efforts alongside local staff since the beginning of June. Sam, a student of International Development, has concentrated on the design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of the HoneyAID economic development project. Emmy, a writer, poet, and editor, has pioneered the development of a poetry workshop which offers middle and high school students outlets to creatively express their understanding of Human Trafficking and Gender Based Violence following IsraAID’s awareness programs. She will compile poetry chapbooks of the students’ work to publicize their voices and discoveries.
