Over the years we have managed to train over 5,000 beekeepers in Uganda cutting across the whole spectrum and enriching us with local content as regards to beekeeping. We have also extended our highly experienced technical skills to D.R. Congo. Our hands on approach, innovations and business modal separates us from the rest who participate in beekeeping development.
We have worked with a couple of Organizations where we have taken on projects from start to finish creating sustainability & real impact especially with smallholder beekeepers and established organisations by building and strengthening strong honey value chains in remote areas in Uganda. We have also helped promote forage conservation for upcoming beekeepers.
