Challenge

Rwaniro village in general, yet there is no people producing sufficient honey quantities for the market. Rwaniro beekeepers are poor people who are mostly ranked level one, which means no other source of income. About 180 beekeepers are using traditional beekeeping techniques to survive. In the area, there are many forests planted, to protect environment, bee keepers who live nears the planted forests need to be empowered to have means and protect the environment in Rwaniro.

Solution

By producing honey for market, bee keepers farmers will earn money. As the government has adopted to protect environment by forests plantations, fauna and flora protections, the surrounding villagers will be able to cope with the planted trees as bees need to develop with various flowers of plants. Hence, the farmers will be motivated in their bee farming as it will be the main source of income. In addition, the economic development of the country will increase as well as Sub-Saharan environmt

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 180 beekeepers in modern Beekeeping techniques and technologies and will support in creation and registration of Beekeeping cooperative in Rwaniro Village of Huye District of Rwanda. The estimated bee hive production will be 120 Kgs per year as the project will be using modern bee keeping technologies by protecting the environment first! The cooperative will be assisted in financial management, Bylaws development(Internal laws and regulations) by empowered bee farmers.
