A new community sports center opens in Borba, Brazil
In September, one of these co-benefits was realized as a new sports center opened its doors to residents of Borba. After years of planning, the center was finally realized thanks to the partnership with the Trocano Araretama project. The center promotes health and wellness by providing a free, dedicated space for locals to practice popular sports such as futsal, boxing, and jiu-jitsu.
Training Brazilian communities on the art of beekeeping
Through the project, two beekeeping courses were recently held for 62 local residents from the Axinim, São José, Purizinho, Piquiá and Caiçara communities. During the training, participants learned about stingless bee breeding and care, known as meliponiculture, and visited an apiary where more than 60 breeds of stingless bees are bred. Here they got hands-on experience building bee breeding boxes, handling the bees, and extracting honey from the hives.
