The bees have been busy – producing about 15 litres of honey in recent weeks. This is the start of a new income stream at the centre. Together with the piggery, the self sustainability of the project is looking positive.
The young people attending the centre have a wide variety of opportunities to get involved in the agricultural activities of the project. These include livestock – cattle, chickens and other wildfowl, pigs and bees; and crops – beans, tomatos, rape, okra, onions, carrots etc. Fruit trees are also being cultivated – bananas, mangoes and citrus fruit. Instruction in these areas help the students develop useful life skills to add to the more formal training they receive.
The last year has been particularly difficult because of poor rains with the resulting bad harvest – anything that can be grown on site is a significant bonus.
