March 2013 Update

Mambo Vipi?  This is just a quick update on our progress with our Beekeeping Project.  I'm happy to report that this project is almost completely funded and we have just under $1,000 to raise before we can implement completely. Thank you so much for your generous support for this project.  All of the funds received go directly towards supporting this project on the ground in Kanga Village, Tanzania.  Since receiving the initial funds, we were able to purchase 15 hives and hold our first training workshop!  Ultimately, we hope that this project will allow farmers to produce more than 50 liters of honey per year, which would drastically improve their income and livelihood.  Not only will the farmers benefit, but they will also have an incentive to conserve the surrounding forest where the bee hives are kept. So thank you again for your support for a great cause!

If you live in or near NYC, we would love for you to join us at our 22nd annual Artists for Africa benefit this April 23rd at the Bowery Hotel, where you can learn even more about our mission to support grassroots community development and conservation projects in Tanzania. We will also be honoring the country of Norway at this event with our New Species Award for the integral role they played in the success of our REDD project.  More details about this special event for Tanzania, its people and its forests, can be found here.
