The Return of the Bees

In Adjingré, a rural village in the center of Togo, new apiculture techniques are protecting the environment and increasing the harvest of beekeepers. Beekeeping has become more lucrative than other forms of agriculture, which has fueled the determination of farmers. Koffi Anwi used to cultivate a cornfield that produced 75 000 francs CFA per year. Today, he can sell a 25 liter jerry can of honey for that same price. With the revenues from his beekeeping business, Koffi was able to buy a motorcycle and afford school supplies for his children. This was made possible through the support of the Agricultural Sector Support Project (PASA).
