Green Care Association has continued to strive in local natural resources management through diversification in the agricultural training center. This has been made possible thanks to GlobalGiving donors. One of these diversification activities is beeswax production using indigenous techniques. This is a chain of processes from training farmers on apicultural activities from site selection for an apiary, making and mounting hives, monitoring the farm when the hives are colonized, honey harvesting, transportation, and marketing. During one of such pieces of training at the Tabah community, one of the farmers, Vincent said that his idea of the honey production chain ends with drained honey. A by-product like a honeycomb chaffs is worthless. It from there that the Green Care team educated the community post-honey production by-products like beeswax. We have been extracting the wax in reasonable quantities and at the same time encouraging farmers to bring the chaffs to the Green Care’s agricultural training center for wax extraction. Green Care is planning a major training of beeswax extraction and how it can improve the incomes of the farmers. So far, we have extracted about a quarter of a ton worth of beeswax. We are looking for potential buyers at the moment. We use this opportunity to thank all our donors for supporting our cause to improve the livelihoods of our people. Thank you!
