We are making this report few two weeks after the terrible earthquake in Haiti, and hopeful that the good news will come from Haiti to us in Sudan. Thanks for your support. Keep it coming and spread the word. The sooner we complete raising fund and complete The ONURA women beekeeping project, the quicker the local women will become self reliant. “ONURA Women Beekeeping project “was retired when we failed to raise $4000 from 50 different donors in our first attempt in “Global Open Challenge” but it went live again when the last Global open challenge which end on December 20 2009. We managed raised $310 by then. After we won a spot on Global Giving website, the fundraising efforts have been promising since January 2010. This project so far raised as per today $1,428 from donors like you.

With $310 GlobalGiving remitted toward this project last year three (3) beehives have been made, and donated to Mrs. Rekele Dudu, at ONURA sub village Sudan.

And this is a quote from her: “with these beehives I see light and hope coming out of the dark past” – a change in our society need us poor women to be in a process for improving our conditions”. -- Now that I have these beehives – I will sell honey and buy myself medicines and clothes.

The two beehives are colonized and the remaining beehive will be colonized soon. This came after waiting for swarming season three months ago. The rate of colonization increases with every swarm that takes it home in the Queen Apiary.

All beekeeping training staff has received intensive training from a local beekeeping education officer and will be enjoying sharing their newly founded skills with the local women beneficiaries in months to come.

We are waiting forward to the upcoming harvest!

Thanks for your support. Keep it coming and spread the word. The sooner we complete raising fund and complete The ONURA women beekeeping project, the quicker the local women will become self reliant.
