A part of our initiative to create small business in the Amazon makes good use of their natural resources that they are blessed with. AmazonVida is implementing a new program of developing bee hives for the people in several villages around the Amazon River.
The hives are a great source of sustainable income that require very little upkeep and the honey can be sold to a processing plant just 60 miles from Parintins. With an increasing interest in natural ingredients and a growing understanding of the medicinal value and uses of bee products, the demand for these products is expanding.
These bee hives will be a new source of income, not just for the local people, but will also bring in funds for building up the seminary program to be able to reach more people with the Gospel!
