Resume:

To contribute to the development of alternative rural youth employment and income avenues through piloting the upscaling and promoting of a scantly uptaken environmentally friendly agricultural practice – namely beekeeping (Apiculture) in Uganda. Through three specific objectives: (1). Mobilizing and skilling a cohort of 100 young people across Rukungiri district in Uganda in updated knowledge, methods, and skills in apiculture development. (2). Strengthening capacities of the four (4) youth apiculture groups we will work with in Rukungiri district in updated practices relating to managing their groups, mobilizing communities, fostering further growth of apiculture, and other related objectives surrounding environmental sustainability, and creation of alternative employment and incomes for young people. (3). To reach out to and mobilize local communities and key stakeholders towards garnering awareness about and support for apiculture and environmental protection.
