More About This Project
There has still been a good progress in Beekeeping. This has necessitated more distribution of bee hives to farmers with additional 40 bee hives being provided to other farmers. There was a good produce from the honey harvest this season, giving a produce of 404kg of pure quality honey processed and sold for the famers and another 300kg or more done independently by other farmers.This has increased income hence improved the earnings and economic power of these households.
As of 2020, 40 more farmers were gifted bee hives making cumulative farmers benefiting so far to be 181.
