Trained by UTMT in early 2015, in tailoring beekeeping inputs – swarm bags and beeveils – Premilaben’s Self Help Group (SHG) in Nanapada village of Dang, Gujarat, bustles with activity. The SHG forms part of UTMT’s beekeeping “ecosystem” in the predominantly tribal Dang district, where a NABARD supported project for women beekeepers is in progress.
The group has made 200 inputs so far, earning an income of Rs. 20,000 from the activity. The inputs will be distributed to new beekeepers as part of the programme – swarm bags are used when transferring swarms of bees into a beebox and bee veils protect the face and neck from bees.
