Another 10 women received 5 hives each
Thanks to you and other donors we have been able to equip and train 10 women in 2 villages.
This additional income from the sales of honey produced by the bees is very important for the women. It is mainly used to pay for health care expenses and school fees.
This activity is not hard in comparaison with the other income generating activities made by the women: spending time on the market to sell some items they have produced, transforming shea nuts in shea butter, preparing cashew nuts, .... Bees are doing most of the work.
With the 5 hives each woman will get an income of around US$ 60. May be it does not look very much to you, but this is a lot for the woman.
We have noticed that, like for many things, women are taking better care of their hives than men. They are making sure that the dry grass around them is taken away to avoid that the hive burns via wild fires. They also make sure that termites cannot destroy the wood of the hive.
There are still many women who have asked us for hives.
We thank you for your support and hope that you are motivated to communicate around you about this project.
