Due to a growing demand for bee products (honey, pollen, wax, royal jelly) and increasing interest in natural methods for disease prevention and treatment, the beekeeping sector has become an object of attention.
In the town of Antoniny in the Krasyliv Raion (Khmelnytskyi Oblast, western Ukraine), where the history of beekeeping dates back to 17th century, two beekeeping cooperatives were created, along with a “Company of Apiarists of Antoniny” association.
Beneficiaries of the project were the unemployed inhabitants of the Krasyliv Raion, victims of the armed conflict in Ukraine, internally displaced persons. Performed activities not only facilitated their rehabilitation through working together but also allowed them to acquire skills in the field of beekeeping and ecological gardening.
Thanks to the work in the apiary participants of the project gained knowledge about the basics of business, finance and budget planning. Acquired skills will be used to start their own businesses.
Total project value: almost 116 750 pln with Polish Aid co-financing in the amount exceeding 81 700 pln (for the purpose of conversion 1 euro = 4,1749 pln).
