Bees for Development Trust

Charity description

Bees for Development Trust logo
Bees for Development assists beekeepers living in poor and remote areas of the world, and raises awareness about the value of beekeeping for poverty alleviation.

For people in remote and poor areas, beekeeping is a feasible way to create food and income while at the same time the bees pollinate crops and wild plants, helping biodiversity. These people have little access to beekeeping information, even though the sector is changing fast and beekeepers must face the challenges of the spread of honeybee diseases.

We send information materials to 4,000 recipients in 130 countries, and provide practical advice on management techniques, marketing, producer empowerment as well as news of the latest developments in the field.

We provide resources for training events, answer thousands of individual requests for advice, and undertake research projects to tackle issues that face the sector.

Bees for Development Trust recognises that beekeeping offers the ultimate sustainable livelihood opportunity for poor people. Our goal is to enable the benefits of beekeeping to increase and reach more people
