The Beekeepers of Shewula

This week’s script is based on the experiences of a beekeeping project in Shewula, Swaziland. There are not many ways to make a living in Shewula, a community of about 3,000 people in the Lubombo Mountains in the northeast of the country. It was thought that beekeeping would help local people earn income, and would not require expensive equipment, or a lot of space.

Ten people from the community took a year-long training course on beekeeping. This script is about some of the problems faced and the creative ways that the project participants found to solve them.
