GMI missionary Ted Rabenold and his team train African beekeepers. One of the most popular parts of the training is learning about harvesting of honey and field inspection of hives. That means that the trainees get “practical hands-on” experience while using beehives.
It is the goal to construct and hang 30 beehives per year. The Rabenolds have received permission from the Tanzania Wildlife Commission to use a local forest reserve’s buffer zone as it will be a safe place for the hives and improve the ecosystem they are seeking to cultivate.

**This project will add value to the training of
Tanzanian/East African beekeepers.
One beehive costs $70.
Thirty beehives cost $2,100.
