Beekeeping to Empower Economically People with Disabilities Project.
This is a project that has trained 15 blind people in bee keeping and gave them start up support of four bee hives, harvesting suits, air tied buckets, bee brush, bee smoker and hive tools. This is with support from TUNADO through Bees for development.
And the 15 blind people also were trained together with their guides as supporting mechanism in their bee farms.
Two training centers for the blind were created for further learning.
Out of the 15 beneficiaries, 9 have harvested their honey and are living independence lives. Please, do support blind beekeeping if you can.
