Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Ethiopia

Location: Ligaba

Total Budget: $53,600

Area of Focus: Economic and community development


young people in rural areas, being landless, have no means of generating income other than occasional labouring.

Beekeeping occupies only the space where the hive is situated and is relatively low cost to start. It is inherently sustainable since colonies subdivide and the swarms are easily attracted enabling the number of hives to grow. This project has the potential to lift ( at least) 100 rural youngsters ( 50 girls and 50 boys) out of abject poverty and endow them with shareable life skills and give them the means to educate their future families enablling them to break out of the awful poverty cycle that pervades. The timeline to teach the basic skills of bee husbandry, hive construction and management, honey and wax harvesting and marketing is 12 months but the project includes the training of Government Extension workers who will provide ongoing support and mentoring. Our local partner, Bees for Development Ethiopia has an establishrd track record of changing people's lives through beekeepng in Amhara.

The Host rotary club, Lake Tana-Bahir Dar, will supervise, monitor, manage finances and assist wherever able.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
