Project Report | Feb 27, 2022
Women Beekeepers get 600 new hives

Thanks to a project called PADEL Burkina funded by the World Bank, we have been able to secure 1.200 new beehives, from which 600 are for women. Each participant received 15 new hives.

The funding is part cash from the recipients (15%), credit from a local bank (15%) over 3 years and subsidy (70%) from the World bank.

It has not been easy for the women to gather the needed cash to be part of the project.

The hives have altready been distributed and installed in the different villages in January and begiining of February 2022. About 75% have already been occupied by swarm of bees.

Even so the women who have received those new hives have already been trained, the beekeeping technician has provided them with additional training and supervision.

A large part of the sale of this additional honey will used to pay back the loans. But after those 3 years each woman beekeeperwill have a additioanl revenu of close to 200 US$!!!

The women beekeepers are still asking for more hives and new women want to be part of this project.

Thank you if you can help them.
