Empowering Beekeepers for Sustainable Livelihoods!

In pursuit of our goal to aid in the alleviation of poverty , SEED Madagascar (SEED) has embarked on a transformative initiative in six communities across the Anosy region, in an effort to support independent beekeepers to enhance their beekeeping as a viable and sustainable livelihood. Over the course of 2 years;2022 and 2023, SEED has been able to promote sustainable practices and economic resilience through project Renitantely. The project is helping beekeepers to expand their businesses into legal enterprises that are registered with the local government. 16 beekeepers have obtained hive codes from the regional ministry to legitimatize their business, and open doors for them to access various support markets offered by the government.

SEED provided 465 fruit tree seedlings and 155 vegetable seed packages to beekeepers in order to enhance bee productivity but also bolster the overall health of local ecosystems. This strategic approach not only benefits beekeepers by increasing honey yields but also contributes to the conservation of biodiversity in the region. SEED’s goal in fostering a symbiotic relationship between agriculture and apiculture is rooted in promoting long-term resilience and economic prosperity for both beekeepers and their communities.

The expansion of apiaries through the construction of 48 new modern hives represents a significant milestone in the effort to holistically fight poverty in the region. These new modern hives, equipped with frames designed for optimal honey production, not only increase the quantity of honey harvested but also improve its quality. Additionally, the expansion of apiaries creates opportunities for beekeepers to diversify their income streams by selling hive products such as beeswax, royal jelly, and propolis. By capitalizing on these additional revenue streams, beekeepers can strengthen their financial stability and improve their livelihoods. The expansion of apiaries contributes to the overall sustainability of beekeeping operations, ensuring the continued viability of this vital industry in the Anosy region.
