Bee PWD Project

Is a two year project (2019-2021) launched in March 2019. The project is funded by National Community Lottery Fund through Bees for Development our partners based in UK. The project specifically works with people who are visually impaired in Gulu and people with hearing impairment in Jinja districts. The Project intends to deliver on three major outputs which are:

  • TUNADO and Bees for Development become PWD-inclusive organisations
  • Opportunities for PWD to participate in beekeeping sub-sector opened
  • Beekeeping-specific adaptive skills training developed and applied for people with visual and hearing impairments

Achievements so far

  • Inclusion of PwDs in TUNADO programmes and activities through provision of sign language interpreting services and personal assistants to increase their participation.
  • Video documentaries of visual impaired and Deaf persons engaged in beekeeping to inspire PwDs to participate in economic empowerment.
  • Beekeepers with visual impairment in Gulu district trained in beekeeping and supported to start individual projects.
  • TUNADO has developed a Disability Policy and implementation framework to guide the Organisation on how to be inclusive.

We thank @worldofbees1 for the equipment credit scheme extended to most of our members that has enabled them to uplift the quality of honey on the market. @TriasEastAfrica @Trias_Int @USSIAssociation

Give me one organisation that beats us when it comes to offering excellent 👌extension services to our members and I will give you 5 litres of Honey 🍯🤣. Our Apiary Masters stationed across the country are just the perfect description of what extension service means.
