Quality of honey harvested

Women of Sipigui
Women of Sipigui

Honey is harvested in 10 villages from 112 beekeepers (45% are women). It is important to insure a uniform quality of the honey purchased from the beekeepers.

To achieve this we have first a training in the village given the beekeepers some education on beekeeping and on what we expect them to do at time of harvest.

Then we go to each village when the honey is harvested. It is visually check: colour, odour, aspect. It is weighted and water content is controlled using a refractometer. 

The purchased honey is controlled one more time when it comes to our office. It is then processed by batch in which each of the harvested honey from beekeepers is identified for tracibility.

This process and analysis have allowed us to get a national certification called ABnorm.

Revenue from beekeeping is very important for the women. This revenue is used to pay school tuitions, health care expenses.

The fact that it is not an heavy work, that it dooes not require strenght and that the space used for the hives is relatively small makes it a very attractive project for the women.

Help us to get even more hives for women.

Thank you for your continuous help.
