Dabur has started a great initiative of Beekeeping project in Bihar and in Madhya Pradesh (Umaria & Katni District). Dabur has planned the same in the Sundarban forest area of West Bengala as well. The aim of this project is to provide a new stream of income, and to alleviate poverty through the training and support of local NGOs in the practice of beekeeping.

Madhya Pradesh

Madhya Pradesh: - In Katni District, 200 colonies were distributed and 20 persons are trained. The main flora in this region is Mahua flower. Nectar flow in this region is very low. The main factors responsible are:-

Mahua Flower, once thought to be the best source of nectar, but actually this flower is a source of honey dew which is present in the petals of flower.
In order to get honey dew from flower, it has to be crushed or damaged with something.

This flower is also used for making alcohol, so while dropped from tree these flowers are collected by local people. In Bandhavgarh (Umaria district), flora is very vast whi ch is very good for beekeeping practices. But the main problem is of bears.

Bihar

Bihar: - Dabur has been doing a beekeeping initiative with the help of Jeevika BRLPS (Bihar Rural Livelihood Promotion Society) in Bihar state. The main district under this program is Khagria & Muzaffarpur. Money, subsidy and other financial help is being provided by Jeevika BRLPS.

Under this Initiative, 3000 Bee hives were distributed to 300 rural families (10 hives to each family). Dabur trained 640 villagers about Beekeeping. People in this area are basically bee hunters. So this initiative has helped in transforming these villagers from bee hunters to beekeepers.

Bees help in the pollination in flowers and pollination help in enhancing the quality & quantity of fruits or crops. So beekeeping will help the rural people in both ways, honey & other product of bees will gave them money and also increases the production of crops and fruits.
