WHAT WE DO
We work with local partners in the poorest countries worldwide enabling their members to earn much needed extra income.
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 complementing their work with our specialism.
THE SOCIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL CASE
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 ECONOMIC CASE
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.
