Bee Keeping

Our bee keeping projects will give people the chance to create their own produce and increase their family income.

 This project was started in 2011 at the Kamuronko School. Two young men were trained at Kisoro where they learnt all about Bee Keeping and how to make and maintain hives.

After some initial difficulties getting the bees to stay in their new hives, some colonies were established and the first harvest was in 2012. Whilst we were disappointed with the yield not all the hives were colonised and in 2013 our aim was to build the bee colonies and keep the bees in their new homes!

We hope that in 2014 we will be able to focus more on this project with the intention of progressing to honey production and candle making and sell the products in our craft shops.
