Apiculture requires patience and commitment but again derives a sustainable income for the beneficiaries and their communities. We empowered and trained our youth in Rusizi District’s Butare Sector on better Beekeeping skills and equipped them with modern materials and tools like advanced beehives and related wears used, this has enhanced a great an impact which can be vividl.y observed today.
