What We do
is Beekeeping

We promote locally appropriate beekeeping to enable participants to generate income to enhance their livelihoods, alleviate poverty and improve their quality of life.

We are a global community of expert beekeepers and field practitioners. We provide equipment, training, field support, marketing and business skills to build beekeeping enterprises.

Today we have over 40 live projects in 12 countries.

We often partner with other charities complimenting their work with our specialism.

It’s inclusive, sustainable and environmentally friendly. There are no gender or age barriers; our projects involve women, young people, those with disabilities and schools.

Locally available materials and labour are all we need for everything from hives to protective clothing. Bees are readily available and free.

We work in rural areas where there is space and good forage.



The price of honey is relatively high because it is bought for its health enhancing properties as well as a sweetener.

Tradition dictates its value in many situations from pregnancy to allergies and wounds. We help people make many other products based on bees wax, propolis and honey such as skin creams, candles and shampoo. Income continues long after we have gone.
