Nestled on the majestic slopes of the
+
Andes Mountains lies a community that has
+
struggled to reconcile its natural beauty with
+
so much need. More than 200 families in
+
this community in Bolivia suffered from rural
+
isolation and government neglect. In order
+
to fundamentally change their prospects, the
+
villagers decided to boost their incomes in a
+
way that would also enhance their nutritional
+
intake. The perfect solution was to
+
introduce beekeeping.
+
Working with the Peace Corps
+
Volunteer, the community created a plan to
+
build two beekeeping sites (or apiaries)
+
containing a total of 30 bee boxes. In order
+
to increase the project’s sustainability the
+
community planted thousands of flowering
+
trees for the bees to feed on. Additionally,
+
planting these trees also helped to prevent
+
destructive soil erosion on the mountainside.
+
As they built the apiaries, the community
+
members also took classes on creating and
+
maintaining commercial beehives.
+
With the first labeled jar of honey
+
ready for sale, this community is so proud of
+
how far they have come. The support of
+
donors from across the United States, an
+
extremely motivated Peace Corps Volunteer,
+
and the hard work of the entire community,
+
has resulted in 5,000 trees being planted and
+
two apiaries being constructed. The honey
+
being produced is now being sold around the
+
region, as well as being used by the local
+
schools to supplement their students’ meals.
+
This project has done more than just improve
+
a town’s material well being; it has shown
+
them how big they can dream if they work
+
together as a community.
