Organisation Overview

Our History

  • We Create Beekeepers for Life. Working with local delivery partners we have helped lift 50, 000 people out of poverty with 100 projects in 15 countries. We understand beekeeping because we are beekeepers. More recently we have developed our strategy and strengthened governance, financial controls and our team of trustees. We are ready to grow.

Beneficiaries

  • Adults

    Women, particularly those heading single parent families, in rural communities in sub Sharan Africa. We teach them to become competent Beekeepers for Life. We provide materials to make hives and protective clothing.

  • Children / Young People

    Very many of our project participants are young people aged between 20 and 30.

Our Vision for a better future

  • Beekeeping is a huge opportunity for the relief of poverty in Africa. We will focus on empowering women through beekeeping. Clusters of linked projects will demonstrate that beekeeping is a truly viable opportunity for women to independently earn sustainable incremental income.

Our goals to make a difference

  • Increase in household income for basic goods, medicines and education from sales of honey.

  • Increase local skills, education and employment through activities related to beekeeping

  • Increased empowerment of women by enabling them to earn independently.

  • Improved health and wellbeing. Honey is viewed as natural medicine in Africa not a sweetener.

  • Improvement in environmental conservation and food security through improved crop pollination.
