Challenge

Poverty in rural Kenya is widespread despite the many opportunities that exist to make a good living. Targeted skills education offers a way to turn this situation around. Although women play a vital role in earning family income girls often get even less agricultural education than their male counterparts. By training girls from poor backgrounds in beekeeping, this project will not only teach them a profitable life-skill, but their school will generate income to fund places for the most needy.

Solution

By providing skills & business training to 750 girls in beekeeping this project will help them support themselves & their families – and by selling honey produced while teaching, the school will be able to fund scholarships to assist the most needy.

Long-Term Impact

Not only will this program help to reduce long-term poverty amongst girls’ families by teaching them useful skills for earning a living, but by demonstrating the rewards of education it will encourage parents to keep their children in school.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
