This project is an extension of a successful pilot project launched with local delivery partner, Ghana Regional Training Network. Based at Yamfo in the Ahafo Region of Ghana the 25 dedicated members of the beekeeping group demonstrated great commitment in 2020, successfully developing their group working and harvesting their first honey against a backdrop of COVID.
This next phase of the project will expand the foundation apiary to ten apiaries totalling 150 hives with the aim of generating £2,300 per annum by project completion to cover healthcare and education costs and reduce environmental damage caused by charcoal production as income from charcoal is displaced by sustainable income from beekeeping.
