The specialist international beekeeping organisation
Hawa supports her family by growing cassava, yam and beans though sometimes without enough to sell.
She began beekeeping very recently, and is just about to enjoy her first honey harvest. She says: “I cannot do honey hunting because I am a woman and a mother of six children. I received training from Bees for Development Ghana and started making hives the day after the first workshop – the very next day!
I now have 24 hives and 11 of them have colonies in them… I am so happy." The first thing Hawa plans to do with her new income is to replace a grass roof on her home, which has caused it to burn down three times, with a safer metal sheet.
Isaac from Bees for Development Ghana met Hawa during a project monitoring visit in February 2020.
