A Project of Hashoo Foundation named ‘Women Empowerment through Honeybee Farming’ has been selected as one of the 12 finalists out of 700 entries for the BBC World Challenge 08 Contest. This is the first time that a rural project from Pakistan has been highlighted on such a forum.
The Women Bee Keepers from the Northern Pakistan are generating their incomes by selling High Quality Honey to the Marriott and Pearl Continental Hotels in Pakistan – earning more than twice the price they would have in the local market. This Income enables these women to provide for their Children’s Education, Health and Nutrition.
