Hives can be made locally, ensuring sustainability
Angouch has been taught how to keep bees and make top-bar hives by Bees for Development. Since the training she has not looked back.
“Beekeeping is a really beneficial activity. I have learned how to make my own bee hives. I have also learned how to harvest mature honeycomb only and maintain the quality by not crushing the honeycombs. We can harvest and sell clean honey – this is something that's very rare locally. It means more money for the family.”
Angouch’s future plans are to expand her current apiary, increasing the number of hives and the volume of honey produced. The extra money that she and her husband have been able to generate by selling honey means that they no longer have to rely on credit to purchase their fertiliser – “now, we buy it with cash,” she says, proudly.
Thank you for helping Angouch, and others like her. Your support is making a real difference.
