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.

One study found that propolis can help people who have had traumatic burns heal faster by speeding up new healthy cell growth. But that's a tip off the icebag of the many uses propolis has to offer.
