Improving Livelihoods through Beekeeping

Beekeeping is one of the major livelihood activities in the departments of Colón and Ocotepeque, providing income and other benefits like food, nutrition and medicine. TechnoServe is promoting sustainable beekeeping in these communities by organizing groups of beekeepers and providing business training and consulting. The program promotes appropriate technologies to increase honey productivity, develop new products and strengthen beekeeping organizations, aiming to benefit more than 150 families overall.
