BEEKEEPING AS A BUSINESS
Since we place great importance on beekeeping, it constitutes one of our core activities and is used as a strong tool in our conservation work. Beekeeping sustains livelihoods and help families in combating poverty. Bees pollinate flowering plants and making it vital for life on earth. Adequate pollination provided by honey bees leads to good quality seeds and fruits, better crop yields and is essential for maintaining biodiversity.
With our beekeeping projects we help local beekeepers and those that want to start beekeeping with free support through practical training, advisory and consultancy services. HOSCO works with individuals and beekeepers groups (disadvantaged groups especially women). We strongly think that beekeeping can be used as a strong vehicle for rural development and biodiversity conservation.
