Emmanuel International "Beekeeping Project” is a unique way incorporating many of our programs in Tanzania into one. Caring for beehives blends work in agriculture, entrepreneurship and tree planting into one project. The Beekeeping This project is an effective way to teach many valuable lessons and practices to Tanzanian communities.
Firstly, beehives in a field can greatly increase crop yields. Bees pollinate the farm's plants, allowing for more food to grow and be stored for seasons of hunger. Additionally, the sales of honey and other bee products are a helpful way to generate further income for a beekeeper.
Currently, we are supporting several beekeeping groups in Tanzania. Emmanuel International is training them in proper habits of a beekeeper, including hive construction and care. Our groups are also learning to make honey and beeswax products such as balms, candles and soaps. These products are sold for a significant profit to the farmer and the beekeeper!
