In November and December 2017 an additional training has been given to the beekeepers with two main objectives:

  • Improve the percentage of hives with swarms
  • Improve the harvesting method

Regarding the colonization of the hives by swarms, the information  we have got from the field is very positive. All contacted  beekeepers have confirmed that 100% of their hives where with swarm.

On the second point we will have to wait the month of April in order to check the impact of the training.

The beekeepers are very optimist about the volume of raw honey they will collect this year. Fruit trees had a lot of flowers this year (mango, cashew nuts, shea nuts, locust bean trees), more than last year.

Price of the raw honey has been increased to 1.85 US$/kg from 1.55 US$/kg. We expect to buy more than 2.000 kg of raw honey in 2018.

This will bring additional income for the beekeepers: more kg of honey and higher price per kg.

There are still 200 villagers looking for hives from which 50 women.

Help us helping them get an additional income by providing them hives.

Thank you for your support.
