Andes Mountains lies a community that has
 
struggled to reconcile its natural beauty with
 
so much need. More than 200 families in
 
this community in Bolivia suffered from rural
 
isolation and government neglect. In order
 
to fundamentally change their prospects, the
 
villagers decided to boost their incomes in a
 
way that would also enhance their nutritional
 
intake. The perfect solution was to
 
introduce beekeeping.
 
Working with the Peace Corps
 
Volunteer, the community created a plan to
 
build two beekeeping sites (or apiaries)
 
containing a total of 30 bee boxes. In order
 
to increase the project’s sustainability the
 
community planted thousands of flowering
 
trees for the bees to feed on. Additionally,
 
planting these trees also helped to prevent
 
destructive soil erosion on the mountainside.
 
As they built the apiaries, the community
 
members also took classes on creating and
 
maintaining commercial beehives.
 
With the first labeled jar of honey
 
ready for sale, this community is so proud of
 
how far they have come. The support of
 
donors from across the United States, an
 
extremely motivated Peace Corps Volunteer,
 
and the hard work of the entire community,
 
has resulted in 5,000 trees being planted and
 
two apiaries being constructed. The honey
 
being produced is now being sold around the
 
region, as well as being used by the local
 
schools to supplement their students’ meals.
 
This project has done more than just improve
 
a town’s material well being; it has shown
 
them how big they can dream if they work
 
together as a community.
