Time for beekeepers to be organized

Women of Nefrelaye

As mentionned in our last report, this period has been a period for cleaning the hives. A specialist went to all villages and trained the women beekeepers to clean the hives. This is mainly taking out some old wax inside the hives.

To help beekeepers to be better organised, we have helped them to start in each of the village a "SCOOPS": simplified cooperative. This was done in 8 villages, from which 2 are 100% women. In the other villages there is a mix between women and men.

We had to hold information meeting in each village so that they understand the advantages to be united:

  • possibility of support to each other when needed (specially at time of harvest)
  • possibility to have some common equipment which they would not be able to afford alone
  • possibility to better communicate to the outside world about their activities
  • possibility to apply for funds from larger institutions
  • Possibility to be stronger in front of customers or suppliers

A UNION of the SCOOPS was also created to bundle them.

It is a lot of work for members and for us, but we believe it is worst it.

Next activity of the beekeepers will be the harvest between end of March and end of April.

Each new hive funded for a woman will bring her a revenue of about 15$ per year. This is a lot of money for her and the bees do the work!!!

Hope you can help those women acquire more hives.

Thanks for your support.
