Bees and Trees in Mbale, Uganda
Working with the Mbale Coalition Against Poverty in the east of Uganda Bees for Development are helping to train farmers to make their own low-cost beehives and set up profitable homestead apiaries. The Mount Elgon region experiences high poverty density and households need additional household income to meet families' needs. Beekeeping is environmentally friendly and can be fully integrated into farmers' existing small plots of banana, coffee and fruit crops.
