With an investment of $2,250.97, Tisasalane Community Based Organization (CBO) will implement a bee farming and honey production project targeting 50 women from 5 Village Savings & Loan (VSL) groups in Mchinji District. A total of 50 beehives will be installed in the government protected forest and each beneficiary will be given her own beehive to manage. The 50 women will be trained in beekeeping, honey harvesting and processing and business management. The farmers are expected to use the skills gained to keep bees, process honey and market it to community members and across the country. The honey produced will be sold under the cooperative to allow farmers gain access to better markets. Tisasalane CBO believes that this project will lead to increased income levels among the women and also contribute to preservation of the forest.
