Gifts from £25
More Details..
Comfort Rwanda & Congo is working with Good News International to create income generation projects for genocide survivors’ groups around Kigali and in the Karongi District. The Hive is a company which supplies beehives, equipment, training and a guarenteed market to beekeepers across Africa. The Hive’s CAB hives are ‘adapted specifically for the aggressive African bee to maximise the most out of this special bee in its natural state’. A hive of these bees should produce 50-70kg of honey per year (usually 6 harvests of 10-12kg). Importantly there is a guaranteed market. By buying a CAB hive or bee keeping equipment you will be helping a survivors’ group become self-sufficient.
