Kasese Community Beekeeping Project

£993 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 3 months
I am running this fundraiser on behalf of Masereka Solomon, and the charity ABRIMAC SECULAR SERVICES - a secular organisation based in Kasese, Uganda, with the aims of promoting education, human rights, and environmental conservation.

Masereka needs financial support to help improve a community apiary aimed at encouraging people to respect and love bees, encouraging the population to get involved in tree planting, fruit growing – promoting conservation and humanism through beekeeping. The funds generated from the bees will be used to fund education for local children.

Through beekeeping, we hope people to get many positive results thus improving the standards of living both for the bees and people - people benefit from bees and bees should also benefit from people, harming them is not good.

The funds will be used to buy additional hives and to purchase equipment necessary to extract bee venom. The venom will be sold to fund scholarships for vulnerable children who need financial assistance in order to attend school. The scholarships will be for the Kasese Humanist School.

Additionally, after the hives mature and honey is harvested, it will be distributed to the children and any excess will be sold to help fund additional scholarships.

Equipment: 20 Hives = £444 
Venom extractor = £634
Protective gear = £178
Apiary defencing = £300
Hive tools = £222
Storage equipment = £222
TOTAL = £2000£

A buyer for the bee venom has been established. The anticipated income is as follows:
20 hives give 1 gram per day = £11
Per month collection = £330
Per year collection = £3960

This income would be enough to fund scholarships for a year of school, with uniform and school supplies, for up to 30 primary students or 15 secondary students.

Note: Bee venom is collected by using a mild electric shock which encourages the bees to sting a collection grid. The venom drops onto a collection plate. The bees do not lose their stingers with this method, therefore it does not harm the bee.
