CAMGEW TRAINS BEE FARMERS ON HONEY QUALITY
In Banyo - Adamaoua Region of Cameroon

22 and 25 January 2023

CAMGEW did sensitization on 22 January 2023 and training on 25 January for 27 bee farmers in Nyawa of Banyo on Honey Quality Control. CAMGEW had done 3 earlier visits in Nyawa and discussed with bee farmers on possibilies of working together. The planned training saw the presentation of model Honey drainer to bee farmers and also the construction of a simple honey drainer with the community. The bee farmers also learned how to use bee suits and bee smokers in Honey harvesting.

CAMGEW also presented a modern beehive and the way it works. Various types of containers that could be used for honey harvesting and storage were also presented to bee farmers. CAMGEW used this opportunity to present to bee farmers various products of NOWEFAM that could be made out of honey if their honey quality improves like bees wax soaps, lotions, Vaseline, honey wine, honey juice.

CAMGEW is grateful for the warm reception she got from authorities and the community engagement in the training. The produced drainer during the training was left with the Yoli bee farmers to use for their honey draining. CAMGEW also donated some honey drainer materials to the community to produce more honey drainers for the community.

CAMGEW promised the community that she will work with them in the honey value chain with the type of engagement she has seen in the community. CAMGEW encouraged bee farmers to make sure that their honey quality improves this year and this with time will be followed by increase in honey prices. This will secure honey value chain jobs and income and better protect nature.
