Honey Makes Money – Beehive Project, UGANDA

Posted on : 14-06-2016 | By : Allan | In : News

This project was set up to help HIV orphans and OVC (Other vulnerable children) be able to attend Primary schools in rural Uganda by supplying beehives to selected government schools so that they could make money for them from sales of honey.

It was started by Uganda volunteers in 2008 and subsequently funded by Rotary Lancaster with the help of other Rotarians, Soroptimist, and private donors. More than 150 children have been helped to attend by supplying them with “scholastic materials” uniforms and money for “porridge”. Beehives, in groups of ten were built in 7 schools in two districts about 90 miles from Kampala. Over time deterioration due to termite damage and neglect in some schools with staffing problems has led to the decision to choose the project, and to donate the remaining funds to the 4 successful schools to “prime pump” new projects of citrus farming or “heifer-in-calf”. Where possible the beehives will continue to produce honey.

The school are very grateful to all the assistance both financial and supportive they have received from Lancaster and District. The new projects will be self-sustaining with lower set up costs and less input from volunteers. Most primary schools in rural areas have a farming projects in their grounds. Likewise the organisers of the project wish to express their gratitude to all sponsors.
