At Educampo, through the En Pro de la Mujer program, we promote the economic empowerment of women in Campeche and Yucatán through the professionalization of meliponiculture, an ancestral practice of great ecological importance.

Through technical training, skills in the proper management of meliponiculture are reinforced, following good practices that promote favorable results for the environment, by maintaining healthy and strong hives that effectively perform pollination, thus contributing to the preservation of the ecosystem.

Mayan women play a critical role in safeguarding the lives of melipona bees, which, in turn, contribute to the preservation of life on the planet.

During this period, the following trainings were provided:

  1. Technical reinforcement in the handling of the meliponarium: feeding or cleaning and work role
  2. Strengthening the review of beehives
  3. Surveillance and management of beehives.
  4. Handling of beehives
  5. Hive Monitoring
  6. Reinforcement of bee biology and diversity
  7. Honey Harvest
  8. Productive analysis
  9. Propolis Processing
  10. Diagnostic assessment of meliponarium
  11. Pest Control

En Educampo, a través del programa En Pro de la Mujer, fomentamos el empoderamiento económico de las mujeres de Campeche y Yucatán mediante la profesionalización de la meliponicultura, una práctica ancestral de gran importancia ecológica.

Mediante la capacitación técnica, se refuerzan las habilidades en el manejo adecuado de la meliponicultura, siguiendo buenas prácticas que promueven resultados favorables para el medioambiente, al mantener colmenas saludables y fuertes que desempeñan eficazmente la polinización, contribuyendo así a la preservación del ecosistema.

Las mujeres mayas desempeñan un rol fundamental al salvaguardar la vida de las abejas meliponas, las cuales, a su vez, contribuyen a la preservación de la vida en el planeta.

Durante este periodo, se impartieron las siguientes capacitaciones:

  • Reforzamiento técnico en el manejo del meliponario: alimentación o limpieza y rol de trabajo
  • Fortalecimiento en la revisión de colmenas
  • Vigilancia y manejo de colmenas.
