Info about the Honey Storage and Processing House
Beekeepers in Malawi want to build a storage and processing house for their beekeeping enterprise. This house will serve to keep the honey safe, preserve its quality, provide more income to beekeepers, act as a reliable supply of honey for the local community, act as center for education and sensitization on conservation and beekeeping practices (for beekeepers, students, and community members), to allow improved networking with other beekeeping groups, and to allow members to be more organized and collaborative with planning/goal-setting, problem-solving, and evaluating group/enterprise progress.
Members have discussed their need with the local chiefs, and they have been given a piece of land, centrally located among the groups, to serve as the sight of their new storage/processing house. They have begun molding bricks, and they will soon begin transporting sand to the sight. They have identified experienced builders and carpenters among the groups, and they will contribute money to pay for a painter upon the completion of the house. Each group will be involved in the construction of the house throughout its various phases. They are requesting assistance in purchasing and transporting the materials needed in the construction of the house.
