Unfortunately, we haven't been able to obtain the minimum necessary resources to ensure the operation of the project for the months to come. Thus, we have to pause it... for now!
We are hoping we will be able to access more steady and secured funding soon so we can reactivate our activities and continue fighting against climate change while improving the producer's livelihoods! The people we have helped are ver moved by your generosity, and will continue working hard in their apiaries to produce excellent quality honey to find clients who value their efforts.
Thank all of you for your kind support throughout these years/months. Nothing would've been possible without you!
Finally, we were able to deliver the so promised beekeeping materials to our producers! They received a handfull of things, from beehives to mobile honey extraction halls, all in order for them to be able to produce better and more honey this season.
We still don't know how things are going to go in terms of volume of honey harvested, nor market prices and thus family income, but we are hopeful that this season will be better than last one.
None of this would be possible without you! Thank you, as always, for supporting our project.
As you probably already know, freight costs have been rising non stop ever since the Covid-19 pandemic started. Thus, we are having a hard time finding a transportation company with reasonable costs to take the beekeeping materials from Aguascalientes, where our supplier is located, to Chiapas, where our beekeepers live. So far, we have only impossibly expensive options that we can't afford.
We'll keep looking, hoping we can find something soon and stop delaying the material delivery. Otherwise, we will have to invent our own logistics service provider and maybe cross the country with our friends and their cars to take the materials ourselves ;)
