Gender conflict for the beekeeping project participants

Meeting with men and women in the village of Fina

When we started the beekeeping project, the applicants lists consisted only of men from 4 villages. Women of those villages where told not to apply by the men.

For the second funding for beekeeping we had, we decided to accept only women applicants. Those women were from 3 new villages where men had not had the chance to aplly yet. 

For the irst group of beekeepers we had no problem with the training and the setting up of the hives in the 4 villages. However, the men of the 3 new villages created a lot of difficulties for us to train the women and set up the hives. For example the men were making sure that the women were not available at the dates planned for the training. Also, since the land belongs to the men, they were not accepting the location for the set up of the hives.

Taking into account those difficulties, we had to promise the men of those 3 villages that they would be included in the next group of participants. This is what we did and all the problems were gone.

From now on, for the beeking project we are making sure that both genders can participate.

What we have learned is that, even if we know that projects will work better with women than with men and if we want it to be a success, we have to have a good balance on who in the village will benefit from the projects.
