Sinyati Women’s Group, Kenya – Filling the Gap in Household Income Caused by Climate Change’s Effect on Pastoral Herding
In the semi-arid area climate change has forced men to migrate further, with herds, in search of pasture
The 20 strong all women’s group established hives but relied initially upon the men to harvest the honey
With careful Bees Abroad mentoring, the group made its own suits from gunny sacks to give themselves independence and control of the harvesting.
The group now makes skincare products and lip balm and sells them through cooperative outlets
