EMDEF supports bee farming club in Nkhata Bay

Extra Mile is upscaling the existing Chisomo bee farming club comprised of 30 members and it is based in Nkondezi T/A Nkumbira, Nkhata Bay district. The club has been harvesting little quantity of honey due to few beehives and other resources and limited skills in honey extraction and packaging.

With MK500,000 funds from our income-generating activities, we have supported the club with 12 bee hives, 2 bee suits, and 4 pairs of gloves. Other necessities will be purchased through their club membership contributions. We expect that quantity of honey harvested next year will be increased hence increasing income generated and boosting the household economy. We look forward to continuing to support the club with the training and construction of their honey processing unit.
