Training Youths in Beekeeping; A Tool for Poverty Reduction

Youths are regularly trained in beekeeping so as to reduce unemployment and poverty. This has proved to be an effective tool as more youths are getting involved.
 We are happy to have six new beekeepers joining the campaign. This will ensure a reduction in the prevalence of adulterated which has flooded the Nigerian honey market.
