Bees Abroad Working in Zambia & Uganda

Thursday, August 01, 2019 09:38 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The latest update from Bees Abroad on their work in Zambia and Uganda is just in. Brief details are given here .

The Zambia project is in Monze which is in the Southern Province close to Victoria Falls. It is in partnership with the Sustainable Rural Development Agency to train women in adding hive products to smallholding farm yields. Beekeeping typically increases family income by around 20% and the project is going well.  Stuart Andrews visited in April-May to check on progress with Phase 2 and plan the third phase of the project.

Supporting Young Beekeepers in Uganda

Volunteer from Bees Abroad are sharing their skills with young people in Uganda, helping them to learn and build their own livelihoods. In Uganda 70% percent of the population is aged 24 or under and 83% of 15-24 year olds are unemployed.

Working with Africa Ray of Hope Bees Abroad have recently completed a train the trainer course  with a youth group near Fort Portal.
When the course started they already had five hives, but they were in a swamp, the combs were crossed and what they had learned about beekeeping was not adequate to make the most of the opportunities beekeeping brings. The first step was to improve the local beekeeping and help to establish a well-managed community training apiary.
