COVID 19 impact on the beekeeping project

COVID 19 did not reach the villages where we have the nbeekeeping project as far as we know. The health care system in rural area of Burkina Faso is very limited and to detect COVID 19 at this level is almost impossible.

However all roads to major cities were closed for 6 weeks and the collect of the harvest of honey was not easy.

The 2020 honey harvest was marginely better than in 2019. The best results came from the village of Nefrelaye were some women got 13kg of honet per hive. The average from the 68 women in the beekeeping project was 6kg of honey per hive.

For the more performant beekeeper it brings her 100 US$ of revenue with 5 hives and on average women got 50 US$ of revenue.

This revenue is very important for the women specially now. Most of the revenue generating activities of the women are linked with markets. Those were closed for 8 weeks making it difficult for the women to pay for essential services such as health expenses.

With those resuklts we are very much encouraged to keep looking for more funding for beehives for women.

Help us communicate about this project to your network. It costs you only a bit of time and it might help additional women in rural area of Burkina Faso to acquire hives.

Thank you for your time.
