The major objective is to contribute to the improved livelihood resilience of 3,672 people (60% women and 40% men) living in the districts of Kotido and Lira, in Northern Uganda by December 2015.
Its against such that Oxfam Uganda has supported The Uganda National Apiculture Development Organisation to organise the forthcoming 6th Uganda National Honey week due 27-29 August 2015 at Lugogo Forestmall in kampala.
According to Oxfarm online sources, Youth form the majority of Ugandan population and their population is still increasing coupled with alarming unemployment levels. Both women and youth have limited economic opportunities. Bee keeping presents a huge opportunity to avert the current situation as an alternative source of livelihood for the youth and women especially in production, processing and equipment manufacturing.
