Challenge

Impoverished widows in Imalinyi division including their children suffer from extreme poverty, diseases and malnutrition. Due to bad customs many widows are forced out of their homes, farms and family business by their in laws after the death of their husbands. The widows and orphans are left with nothing. They are forced to poverty hence fail to have enough food, health care and education to their children.

Solution

The project will provide self employment to 100 widows by providing them 5 beehive each. Beekeeping business is cheap to run and can easily be managed properly by the widows. Honey has a good market both locally and abroad, thus beneficiaries of the project will easily generate income and improve their income, food nutrients and medicine. Honey and its products can be realized within a year, thus alleviating the extreme poverty sooner.

Long-Term Impact

This project will start beekeeping activity and training to 100 widows of Imalinyi Division in beekeeping, harvesting honey, processing, packaging and marketing. Honey and other products sells from beekeeping business will generate income which will improve livelihood and wellbeing of beneficiaries and their families. This income generating activity will break the poverty circle which without, these widows would have continuously remained poor.
