In a small corner of Wales, 21 years ago, a group of four beekeepers gathered. As a result ‘Bees Abroad’ was born on 18 April 1999.
Working with in-country partners
Our volunteer expert beekeepers work through in-country partners and trainers. Over time we build a trusting relationship supporting and guiding their development to deliver projects with our funding and oversight.
The Benefits of honey production
Beekeeping becomes a small business supplementing the income of our project participants. Money earned by selling honey is used to pay for school fees, medicines and household essentials.
Sustainable and bee-friendly methods
We always use locally sourced sustainable materials to make hives and protective clothing. We only use hive types suited to local climatic conditions and always work with indigenous bees.
