Beekeeping Project | Nineveh SEED
Mosaic Middle East provided these four families with the means to rejuvenate the honey production cottage industry in this mountainous region, to the north of the Nineveh plain. Two Yazidi families and two Christian families benefitted. This area was where many Yazidis were trapped whilst fleeing from ISIS in 2014.

the project

Mosaic Middle East restored these family businesses in the Sinjar and Maqloob mountains. Four families, two Christian, two Yazidi were actively searching for assistance to re-establish their local profession. After the defeat of ISIS in 2017, families like these ventured back seeking to rebuild their lives. The project was run in partnership with an Iraqi charity whose aim is to create opportunities like this.

Goals
  • To support families around Sinjar and Maqloob to re-establish the beekeeping profession.
  • To help these people earn an income again.
  • To encourage Internally Displaced People within Iraq to return.
