Bee Keeping and Fish Ponds

Our beehives and fish ponds are income-generating endeavours that are used to help train community members in sustainable enterprises. Our 14 ‘Langstroth Hives‘ are harvested every three months to provide a steady stream of income and honey for the Nasio guesthouse. They also provide a safe haven for local bee colonies. Fourteen kgs of honey have been harvested so far this year. Our collaboration with the Ministry of Livestock has resulted in an exponential increase in our production.

The two fish ponds are home to tilapia fish, a local delicacy. The ponds provide a source of protein for those who cannot afford to pay for red meat. The fish ponds are integrated into our Peer Education Programme to provide young people with income-generating opportunities so that they refrain from risky sexual behaviour. We sold 2,000 tilapia fish in 2023.

Impact

  • Steady income for the charity through sale of honey and fish. The income earned through the projects is invested back into the charity’s other activities
  • Training of local entrepreneurs and young people in bee-keeping and fish-pond management
  • Environmental protection through promotion of healthy bee colonies and pollination

Visit to one of Nasio’s projects – The Porridge Kitchen

We were lucky enough on our recent visit to Nasio’s projects to be involved in the new support group for mums with malnourished babies or very young children.

The Porridge Kitchen had recently evolved so that the group had decided to meet at a different home each week.
