Where is Katherine Milling? In the Northwestern province of Zambia!
Katherine, since leaving Central to join the Peace Corps years ago, is now involved in a social enterprise (Nature’s Nectar) which helps shift farmers to sustainable produced Kenyan top bar beehives, creating an impactful income. Though women have been and are traditional beekeepers, it is a very small percentage in comparison to men. Her program specifically targets women to be included in this opportunity, reaching no less than 50% of farmers being female. With out experience working in rural villages, we have found women to be reliable, hardworking and the least included in economic opportunities. These beehives have the ability to create an overall economic impact of $500,000 annually.
