Bees Abroad want to celebrate and recognise the critical role and contribution of rural women, in enhancing development and improving food security. Through our Beekeepers for Life Campaign we are working closely with incredible rural women in countries across Africa. Supporting them in their increasingly influential roles. Helping women to build the local infrastructure, to increase resilience, food security, and nutrition through beekeeping.
