Rainy season in Burkina Faso

Between the month of June until end of September it is rainy season in Burkina Faso.

During this period, villagers are busy cultivating the fields. There is only one rainy season in Burkina Faso. The whole ressources (food and cash) of the family come mainly from the work in the fields during this period. In order to compensate for a bad rainy season or to increase the revenus of the families, other activities not related to the rains are needed: collect of fruits (mango, cashew nuts) or beekeeping.

Women are telling us that beekeeping allow them to have honey for their own consumption and to have revenu for the part they sell.

During this part of the year there are not many flowers.To survive bees are eating some of the honey they have produced after the harvest we have made in April.

Next activity will be to look at the hives in October to see how they went through the rainy periode and to clean around them all the grass / trees which have grown during this period.

Women need your support to have more hives to help them support their families.

We count on you.
