About us

Bees for Development was established in 1993 and has grown into the leading international organisation specialised in working to alleviate poverty through sustainable beekeeping.

We achieved Charitable Status in 1999.

All our work is determined by the evidence that beekeeping is an accessible, environmentally-friendly way for people in disadvantaged communities to make a living.

We are based in Monmouth, South Wales and have a small team of full and part-time staff.

We rely on grant and charitable donations to enable us to assist beekeepers in developing countries.
