Kitgum Women Community Beekeepers

This beekeeping project is intended to generate household income and improve the socio-economic status and living conditions of women living in Kitgum District, northern Uganda. Profits from the honey sold will improve the status of women, reduce poverty and increase local employment. A community revolving-fund will also be established from the proceeds of honey sales and will be used for the benefit of other community members through the provision of micro-credit loans to extend the uptake of beekeeping and to help community members diversify into other agricultural production, or assist with other entrepreneurial activities.
