PRODUCTIVE BEES

As we have mentioned before, here at the ATprojects Centre we look after a number of beehives and every now and then we see the rewards of looking after these bees. This week we collected almost 20kg of honey from only eight beehive frames, this was a tremendous harvest and to make the work of harvesting the honey easier we sometime ago purchased a simple hand operated honey extractor [see picture]. While we do keep some of the honey for ourselves and some for our accommodation facility most of this honey and the honey that will be harvested over the next few weeks will be sold to the major honey distributor in the Highlands.

FINDING OUT WHAT THE CHILDREN THINK!

Following a number of health and hygiene lessons after the building of new toilets and water supply facilities at Mapemo Early Learning Centre, the ATprojects Health Team went back to the Centre in May to evaluate the lessons. The feedback from teachers and students was very positive and almost everyone said they learned new things about health & hygiene, the explanations were clear and the contents of the lessons were relevant to the children. The teachers commented “The students were very interested to the lesson that you taught them. They can still remember the five steps to wash their hands after using the toilet and put their rubbish in the right place”.
