Honey in Uganda

 

This initiative is closed. It was realized by Howest before the Howest Foundation was set up. We show this project on this website as one of many examples of the corporate social responsability initiatives Howest University College already supported in recent years.

There we were, Michaël Mostaert and Valentine Allemon, packed at Brussels Airport, ready to take a flight to another continent. A few hours later, we set foot on the African continent. Let the adventure begin, we thought. The first night in Uganda was difficult due to the extreme temperatures. However, the following morning, we were wide awake and ready to meet everyone; we were also allowed to take a look at how things are organized in this Ugandan laboratory. Several agreements were set and our mission was explained: validate testing kits that indicate antibiotics in honey.
