Challenge

Beekeeping is an important livelihood in Haiti. Honey is a natural sweetener that can also be used for treating illness. Cross pollination by bees makes honeybees an essential part of a healthy agricultural economy. After losing their hives in a hurricane, a beekeeping association in Southern Haiti wants help re-building their beekeeping activities.

Solution

If we provide 60 beehives, supplies and training for the 35 members of the beekeeping association in southern Haiti, they will be able to lift themselves out of poverty and once again provide a sustainable income for their families.

Long-Term Impact

With the extra income provided by the sale of honey at the local market, children will have a chance for a better life. More importantly, 35 families will become self-sufficient.
