‘Educate a women and she will educate her whole family’. ‘Empower a woman and the entire family will be supported’. Far too many women are left widowed with several children to support and have no way of earning a living. Creating sustainable income-generating activities is an essential part of our work.
200 women from Muyundu and surrounding villages have initiated a beekeeping project. This is mainly for honey production but also for wax, soap and candle-making. A workshop, storeroom, toilets and a borehole were completed in 2020 now each woman has ownership of a hive. They have received training in beekeeping and business management. The aim is to provide a sustainable income-generating enterprise for these women who live in a remote area of Nyawa Chiefdom in the Kazungula District.
