ADRA-Bulgaria has started the project Bee4Thee in November 2019 in the Municipality of Vidin – the most distant north-western part of Bulgaria.
For the purpose of the project, 180 hives have been donated to 15 people in February, together with 15 new honey extractors, full beekeeping equipment, and in June – 180 honey bee colonies will complete the apiaries. Each beneficiary is nominated by the Social Assistance Directorate and will be supported by beekeepers with experience from our partners the Beekeepers Association “Dimitar Balev”. At the moment the future beekeepers are being trained by lecturers, conducting theoretical classes. A month of practical training is forthcoming.
