Green Institute Zimbabwe in partnership with Girl Child Empowerment Zimbabwe are currently running a beekeeping project. The project is meant to support cyclone Idai victims with life skills training, in a move that is meant to give women in affected communities’ financial empowerment. To achieve this, 100 girls and young women from Matanga, Barauta, Dimire, Masheedze and kobeka were trained with sustainable beekeeping skills. The idea behind capacitating these women, is to improve livelihoods and to educate villagers about forestry conservation as most participants reside around Chirinda forestry, one of the remaining natural forests in Zimbabwe-which currently under threat from massive deforestation. We have so far created about 120 beehives, specifically for this project.
