Project Report | Dec 5, 2018
Now it is time for the bees to work!

Training of women in Sissa

As we have reported in our last report, we have provided 250 new hives to villagers, mainly for women.

Training and installation of the hives took place in July during the rainy season. Almost 100% of the 250 hives have been swarmed.

It is now time for the bees to do their job. Around the end of October, there is the possibility to harvest a little bit of honey. Taking into account the very long rainy season, we have decided not to harvest the hives. Bees need the honey they have produced for food until the new flowers comes out.

The main harvest will be in April 2019.

Climate change is having major impact on culture yields. Pollination can help maintain a certain level of production for fields and fruit trees. Bees play a major role in this pollination.

The extra revenue from the sales of honey is very important for the women. For once women get somebody else (the bees) working for them instead of working for others!

At this year-end we hope you can help more women get some hives.

Season greetings from the women of the villages.
