For more, log on to our website — www.goingtoschool.com “I like beekeeping; I can run a business, earn money and study at the same time.” – Anita Kumari, Beekeeper Anita Kumari is a beekeeper in Bochaha village, Muzzafarpur district, Bihar. When Anita was young, her parents did not want her to go to school, but Anita wanted to go to school so much that she knew she had to find a way to pay for her education. Anita saw men in her village beekeeping and decided to give it a try. She saved enough money from teaching other children to buy two queen bees and begin her beekeeping business. Today, Anita has over 100 boxes of bees; she makes her own honey, goes to college on her bicycle and is still only 17 years old.
