Winds of Change partners with National Beekeeping Institute to improve livelihoods through beekeeping training

Winds of Change Foundation (WoC), in partnership with the National Bee Keeping Institute of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperatives conducted a beekeeping training for the residents of Laisamis Constituency between 14th and 18th December 2020.

The training equipped the trainees with the necessary skills to start, manage and improve their income through beekeeping. Through a series of theoretical and practical sessions, the training covered topic areas including beekeeping equipment and colony management, honey and wax processing, production of skin care creams and candles, and products marketing.

Mt. Kulal, being a conservation area, will greatly benefit from the project, as beekeeping is critical in biodiversity conservation while being a source of sustainable livelihood.

WoC Foundation further donated beekeeping safety equipment to the trainees.
