Cameroon presently sees honey as a non-timber forest product| glObserver Global Economics

Like a lot of educated people in Cameroon, Timothee Awanga found that a college degree did not guarantee him a better life. His life changed for the better at the same time as he learnt to cultivate an abundant natural resource in his home village – bees. He became an entrepreneur selling bees and their by-products, honey and beeswax.

Sourced through from:

Timothee Awanga, 42, teaches 15 Cameroonian youths about honey-bee colonies near his home in Matomb, a village 70 km from Yaoundé. He takes them through his 30 bee hives, each of which holds at least 30,000 bees.

He waits until nighttime, at the same time as the hive is full of worker bees returned from collecting nectar. Again he locks the hive and brings it to his trainee bee farmers.
