Challenge

Juaboso is in a forest zone hence the main livelihood of the people of Juaboso is mostly in cocoa farming. Beekeeping is also becoming additional alternative livelihood venture for the women during the off cocoa season in Juaboso district of Ghana. However, most of these women are unable to produce good quantities of honey to increase their income levels during cocoa off-season and attract potential buyers. Also some of the women who are already in honey production use the traditional methods.

Solution

This project will build capacity of 60 women to produce good quality of honey to increase their income levels by 80% during cocoa off seasons. It will also help to reduce over dependence and curb the degradation of the forest during cocoa off season since they will reduce using the forest reserve as small farm lands and cut young trees for charcoal also the project will improve their incomes which will improve their economic development

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 10 women to train other women groups in the project districts after donor fund ends to sustain the project. Also the project will also train women for a village savings scheme to generate funds after donor funds ends. There will be a reduced over dependence on the forest and curb deforestation. The women will be economically empowered to be able to support their households in terms of education, and health of their children
