But ten years ago, Asaf had just three traditional
hives and produced only six kilogrammes of
honey a year. Then he attended a national
training of trainers programme, organized and
sponsored by the Entomology Department of
the Ministry of Agriculture. After completing
his training, he became involved in training
other beekeepers in his local communities.
Asaf was also able to interact with NGOs
and international and local funding agencies,
such as USAID, FAO and the District Farmers
Association. These agencies helped him to
expand his apiary and acquire improved top-bar
