Bees make good business sense in Onura.

We need help to produce bee-hives for Onura!
We need help to produce bee-hives for Onura!

A section of Onura village has taken up bee-keeping to make money.

The village had to diversify after long periods of heavy rain which caused the death of hundreds of its bees, and destroyed several hives. It has been a painful experience for the Onura women because of the value they attach to their bee - keeping, and their honey.

But the bee-keeping project has enabled them to sell honey in their own market and also outside Magwi County.

Six bee-hives will be given to three families, and also five women will be receiving training in bee-farming. The trainees have been selected.

In three months to come a new update will be posted, and also we will report on how your contributions are making impact on the lives of women.

We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to help local women to get out of the cycle of poverty.
