‘Honey Mission’ has proved as a game-changer in the lives of tribal’s, farmers, SC/STs and unemployed youths. Around 350 Bee-Boxes were distributed at the function. So far, KVIC has distributed over 1.15 Lakh Bee-Boxes across the nation among the marginalized community, which provided jobs to at least 11,500 people. Not only, it has increased the income of the bee-keeping farmers, but also increased the yield of the crops up to 30 percent due to cross-pollination of the honey-bees.

Khadi and Village Industry Commission (KVIC) distributed as many as 50 leather kits and 350 Bee-Boxes with live bee colonies among tribal-dominated village in Sirohi district of Rajasthan, which is identified as one of the model tribal districts in India by the NITI Aayog on the occasion of World Tribal Day. 

While addressing the villagers, KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena said that the programs like Leather Mission, Kumhar Sashaktikaran Mission and Honey Mission are a reflection of KVIC`s commitment to uplift the lives of marginalized communities in  society.

KVIC also launched a new programme ‘Leather Mission’ on the occasion of World Tribal Day from the tribal-dominated village of Chandala. Under this new programme, KVIC will give Leather Kits to the leather artisans across the nation. It will not only increase their income but also inspire the traditional leather artisans who had migrated to other jobs from their traditional skill to adopt this vocation again.
