dc.description.abstractThe problem of poverty and low living standards in Kenya in general and in Kapseret in particular, affects the youth more than any other group. The main reason for this is the fact that youth constitute the largest group of the unemployed population and have no physical assets of their own. Many dropped out of school with no technical or business skills. They therefore have no economic or financial resources of their own, no access to jobs and no sources of income. They are simply unemployed while those who find some form of casual employment are underemployed. Bee keeping is an up coming industry in Kenya and earns bee farmers substantial income through sales of honey and other bee products. Langstroth hives have proved to be more popular than Kenya Top bar Hives. The demand for Langstroth hives has been rising as they are more productive. The tripartite model developed by Honey Care Africa is recommended as the most appropriate model for diffusion of beekeeping as an economic development strategy targeting youth in rural areas.
