In Bimbilla (Ghana) 150 women are trained as beekeepers and an organic Honey is build. Honey is healthy and beekeeping is environment friendly. Bees are necessary and important for the whole ecological cycle. Do you know that all over the world bees are dying by crowds? Luckily in Africa not yet.
Besides all the benefits for nature the women are able to generate an extra income by themselves, which enables them to send their children to school and get health insurance.
