Helping Beekeepers in Ethiopia

As you are interested in bees? This season we are asking you to support the poorest people in Ethiopia – to utilize beekeeping to alleviate their poverty. Bees for Development is the leading beekeeping charity working to address the dual concerns of poverty and environmental damage in the developing world, all with the help of honey bees.  We have recently established a Centre in Ethiopia to train the chronically poor.  The Centre has been a huge success raising annual incomes by (on average) 42%.  The typical annual income is $US 290, and beekeeping therefore really can improve their lives.

We are seeking funds to help more people. In addition to increasing income for poor families, BFD’s approach helps to ensure healthy honey bee populations and, through pollination, increases the yield of local crops too. You can help us also by forwarding this request to your beekeeping community.
