Beekeeping in ONURA sub village is seen as a perfect model of sustainable agriculture. It has greatly benefited the local women by providing additional food, medicine and income.

- Dadu- project beneficiary, quoted beekeeping as: The beekeeping initiative has given new local economic inputs in Onura sub village and empowered women economically. By having three beehives and selling honey in a village where women are marginalization is really good. I wish more women will get beehives and sell honey “as I do”.

We have not been able to distribute beehives due to lack of production materials because the project have not been able to generate money to purchase the materials to make beehives. Donation toward this project has not also been good in the past 3 months. This is due to Global economic recession. But we are optimistic that changes will come soon - and finally we get more funds through GlobalGiving from our donors.

We know that this is a hard time for everyone but at the same time we need your support for HopeOfiriha help more women. Give us only $10 monthly – even if this may sound no money in the USA – this is a big amount of money in Onura sub village Sudan.

You will be hearing from us within 3 months again with new project update!
