Beekeeping skills for 400 youth in Ethiopia
 
Many young people are growing up in poverty in Ethiopia with no opportunities to escape the chronic destitution of their parents. This Project gives them an opportunity - through bees. We will provide beekeeping training, and their first bee colony, and so help them build a business that will provide a regular income throughout their lives. Bees feed on trees and the Project will enable new beekeepers to plant trees. Honey and beeswax can be sold for a high price and provide much-needed income. project reportread updates from the field
Bees for pollination to improve lives in Ghana
 
Bees are amazing! They can help to solve poverty in more ways than one. In Ghana cashew farmers struggle to make ends meet. Bees can change this - twice over! They can give farmers honey to sell AND they can improve cashew nut yields through pollination. Research has shown that bees can increase cashew yields by 100%. This project will train some of the poorest farmers in Ghana to start beekeeping and secure a better future for their families - with the help of the honey bee. project reportread updates from the field
People and Bees in Ethiopia
 
We are helping some of the poorest families in Ethiopia earn income through beekeeping. This income is essential to keep children in school, well-fed and pays for medicines when needed - and begins to break the cycle of poverty for households in northern Ethiopia. We are not giving equipment - instead we provide training, knowledge and skills so people can keep bees, earn money and not be reliant on outside help. Honey and beeswax can be sold as a reliable source of family income. project reportread updates from the field
