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.

Learning can be fun!

Community Partnership for Youth and Women Development (CPYWD) organizes After school Programs in Tamale (Northern-Ghana) for the youth. Local community workers stimulate the children to express them selve, show their creativity, be self-confidence and critical. The local volunteers work use the PAC man Approach, Positivm, Activity & Creativity. The children who attend the programs are a mix of children who go to school and who don’t go to school. It stimulates the children to go to school and in the aftertoon they learn to bring the theory into practice. A beautiful combination! Schools, teachers, chiefs, parents and the local government are involved.
