Interesting Story

 

Story from Tutindaga Anyelwise, widow from Bujesi village - Southern part of Tanzania. “We would love to express our heartfelt thanks to TA foundation Team for training and supporting us, as women in the village our Income has increased so now our children can go to school. We can buy necessary dresses for them. Cash is very important for me. I had no cash before, so could not do anything on my own. I had to exchange goods with others and had no choice. Now I can earn, save and think and plan for tomorrow which was not possible before”.

Through the project impacts apart from micro businesses that we are running as a group, I have two dairy goats and my own beehives that I earn money by selling milk, honey and its related products. I can run my family better and I’m happy about that. My two children now go to school, get basic human needs on time such as food,clothes and I have money to buy medicine when they become sick”

Women and Honey Making

Beekeeping project and its advantage resulting honey is rich, sweet and delicious. However, it’s what it can do for the women of the village that is really impressive. It wasn’t long ago that women were excluded from honey making altogether.

‘Traditionally it was the men of the village who produced honey, and we women were excluded. TA Foundation approached women in the villages, and showed them that they could also produce honey like men.’ Said Tumaini.

‘Traditionally,Honey used to be harvested from high up in tall trees, the tree would be set on fire to scare off the bees, and the collecting was done in the middle of the night in darkness! This made it very dangerous, and with this way of getting honey it was difficult for the women of the village to take part.’

Tumaini thinks for a moment before continuing ‘It makes me feel very happy, as something that was not possible is now possible. We would just stand by and watch as the men got the honey, now we have better knowledge and can get our own.

The honey we produce has good quality, even if we make a smaller amount people will always buy. As the days go on, we shall increase the production per hive. Previously, people would not try honey even for 10 years! Now we have it all of the time, so people in the community are very happy because of the project because through this,they can get money for purchasing basic human needs for their families.’
