This is the dry season in Zambia and it is a time of concern following a poor crop due to lower than usual rainfall. Most people try to survive on subsistence farming and have little cash, so they are worried. The price of basic foodstuffs is going up as demand exceeds supply. In this country there is absolutely no rainfall between April and November!
But work goes on...
Our project has been a hive of activity in recent months as students participated in the making of beehives in readiness for the apiary to be located at Chipilepile a few kilometers away from Kaliyangile Training Centre. This has cheered many local beekeepers and has motivated a number of youths and women wishing to train in beekeeping.
Betty, a young mother, and others appreciated donated baby clothes from the container sent by HATW.
Our new photocopier helps with the computer training, admin and teaching resources, and generates a little income from the local community too.
Your encouragement and donations help bring beautiful smiles to many! Thank you for all your support.
