Madilanyu Bee keeping Company

(For-profit organisation)

Madilanyu Bee Keeping Company was established as a peace building initiative between the refugee and the host community of Itirikwa sub county, Adjumani District. It was founded in the year 2014, as the refugees were seeking for asylums; majority did not have any livelihood project they are engaged in. Unfortunately, in Adjumani district land conflict, poverty and lack of employment opportunities are some of the challenges affecting the communities. Influx of refugee from 2013-2017 has greatly accelerated conflict among refugees and the host over land hence an initiative to put an end to frequent conflict over resource between the host and the refugees.

In response to the above, an idea of bee keeping was sought to address some of the untidy challenges affecting peace coexistence between the refugee and the host community.

Since the year of inception, the group has so far moved over 30 households from the bound of poverty to middle-income zone by the year 2019.
