In Sri Lanka, many of the families we partner with are being trained in the art of beekeeping. If that sounds strange, it shouldn’t. Beekeeping is a very low-cost way of generating sustainable sources of food and income.
Participants in the program are given training and provided with a low-interest loan to purchase the necessary equipment.
The project is still in its early stages, but families are already seeing positive results. Of the 80 participants, many are earning a monthly income of $20-30CAD from selling the honey they’ve harvested – a considerable amount for many of them.
We’re really excited about our work in Sri Lanka. Stay tuned throughout the year for more updates on how the project is going.
