Did you know that according to MUHAMMAD R. JA’AFAR-FURO ‘beekeeping with the exploitation of honey and beeswax alone in some selected communities in Nigeria yielded interesting results; Investment return on beekeeping was 9.12 compared to 0.40 for crop production.’
One of the primary objectives of ApiExpo 2018 is to get small holder farmers and beekeepers see beekeeping as economically viable, seeing it as a means of livelihood and source of house hold nutrition and income. It will of course increase food production as the bees effectively pollinate crops.
A $10 sponsorship of a beekeeper will offer a small holder farmer in Nigeria, particularly the vulnerable women and youths in North-East Nigeria that opportunity! What you will be doing is to give the fraction of about 1.0 billion poor farmers globally living in rural areas an opportunity to reduce hunger and malnutrition. Contribute $10 or more to sponsor beekeepers to ApiExpo 2018, Abuja, Nigeria.
