Support People and Bees in Ethiopia this Christmas
Since 2012 our Beekeeping Centre in Ethiopia has trained 390 women and men to help them keep bees as a family business. We are now raising funds to expand this work.
When families don't earn enough their children are sent out to work instead of to school. Please donate what you can to help us reach more people and to keep children in school - through beekeeping.
In 2015 we aim to train 150 families and 4 youth groups in beekeeping. We will introduce beekeeping skills to the poorest families who have little land. The bees will feed on flowers growing on other people's land!
Newly trained beekeepers enjoyed an excellent honey harvest in December. The market for honey and beeswax is growing in Ethiopia and selling is profitable. A little is saved a tasty treat for the family.
Thank you for helping People and Bees in Ethiopia.
