Thank you for your help which is enabling us to train young women and men to keep bees in Amhara, Ethiopia. In these images you will see a training course underway. One aspect of the training covers how to multiply bees so the new beekeepers can gradually expand their apiary, another part is about beehive making. Bees are purchased locally from existing beekeepers and we provide one colony to each of the new beekeepers. The bees are transported in local hives - as seen in the image, and covered in cloth to stop the bees from escaping.
One of the young men on the course said, "I am excited to own my own bees for the first time. I can see that this will be a good business for me. I know that honey fetches high prices".
