The Beekeeping and Smale-scale Farming project improves food security and economic income for rural Bolivians by teaching participants new skills and providing supplies to grow orchards, raise small animals, and produce honey for consumption and marketing. Support this project through financial contributions and prayer.
The rural poor in Bolivia face many challenges. Common to the area is Chagas disease, which CBM continues to fight through providing home renovations and prevention education. Another issue many Bolivians face is food and economic insecurity. Once their homes are renovated to prevent Chagas, beneficiaries can enter a program to improve their health and economic situation. Participants attend training workshops where they learn how to care for small animals, plant and cultivate vegetable gardens, and learn to maintain apiaries. The honey that is then produced is sold and the profits are reinvested into the purchase of new hives to provide more families with a growing source of income.
