Provide a new livelihood for families in Kenya
Your gift of beehives in Kenya
Bring an eco-friendly, healthy buzz to families in Kenya.
Families in Kenya struggle to survive long periods of drought and generally poor farming conditions. Beekeeping is one of the few ways to earn an income without damaging the environment.
Your gift will provide a family with training, bees, hives, flowering plants and water.
Once the bees move in, families can earn money selling honey and beeswax for candles and soap.
A new livelihood for struggling young people
“I had to move from place to place but there was no guarantee that work would be available. Before I just worked day to day and had no vision for the future.”
Gebremichael Gebretsadiq (pictured with colleague Silas Woldegergis) is part of a beekeeping cooperative in Kabele in northern Ethiopia which brings together young people with no land and limited livelihood opportunities. Since joining he speaks enthusiastically about his plans: "I am investing for my future. I hope to have good money in a few years. I am also helping to educate others—I want us to get rich together!"
