In June this year the directors of A Bees Company visited the Amudat region with some donors. The objective was to get a first impression of how the Female Apiary Managers are doing. They were happy to see how motivated the women had taken up their role and responsibility. There were questions about pest control (i.e. little black ant and honey badger) and income potential after a year. The coming year ZOA will visit the Fam’s every month, complete a status report  and give them their monthly salary. In total more than 50% of the hives is already colonized and the swarming season was just starting.
