Bees for Development Trust helps projects and groups in developing countries by sending Resource Boxes - a pack of publications and materials for use at beekeeping events, meetings, training courses and workshops. We tailor the contents of Resource Boxes to meet the needs of recipients based on their specific training requirements and geographical location.
"I am delighted to confirm that I have received the Resource Box which you sent following my request. It contains very useful materials in the journals, booklets and cards. It will certainly be a useful tool to me as I venture into beekeeping. Your organisation is doing a commendable service". Cosmas Mulenga, January 2013"I recently did basic training in beekeeping. I was delighted to learn from the magazine that you assist with information on beekeeping. I would appreciate if you could help me with a Resource Box. I have already placed eight top-bar hives on my farm. I feel that the information from the Resource Box will make me confident with beekeeping activities".
Cosmas Mulenga, Kitwe, Zambia, October 2012
"I received the resource box and I have been utilising the incredibly informative information and resources enclosed to win a grant from the Peace Corps to implement a beekeeping project here in Azerbaijan Thank you so much for your help, it will be very influential in the approval of my grant application for tools and training for a home based beekeeping programme for families with disabled children in this remote location in Azerbaijan".
