Case studies of beekeepers with disabilities

Updated 6th May 2020
For most people in rural Uganda, agriculture is the most likely means of generating income – and for people with physical disabilities, it’s often too labour intensive to be able to manage. Beekeeping is significantly less intensive than growing crops but can still generate good income. Because of this, beekeeping can be an excellent way for people with disabilities to take back some control and become more independent through this new and accessible livelihood opportunity.

Our team has been collecting inspiring stories of beekeepers with disabilities from across Uganda. Our hope is that people with disabilities will see these stories and identify with the daily challenges and constraints these people face, and perhaps they too will be inspired to try keeping bees for themselves. The possibilities are endless!
