Titre : Help women increase their income with beekeeping (Burkina Faso)

Pays  : Burkina Faso

Date : Date non précisée

Contexte
Besides small trading for income, women in Burkina Faso rural areas do not have income from the land which belongs to their men. Often, they have to take care of their family education and health care. Beehives do not take much space and the work is done by the bees. The income of 5 beehives is around 100 USdollars per years. Giving the opportunity to have hives and to be trained in beekeeping is a life saver for a woman

Présentation
With 5 beehives a woman can get yearly close to 100 USdollars income from the sale of the honey. There are 20 women in 4 villages who have asked for beehives. Beekeeping not only will increase the women income, but alaos help the polination of the fields and fruit trees.

Impact
The beehives provided to the woman will bring them extra income from the sale of the honey and wax. This extra income will help the women take care of the education and healthcare of the family. In addition bees will also help polination of the fields and fruit trees which will also help the farmers.
