Bees for Development promotes sustainable beekeeping to combat poverty and to build sustainable, resilient livelihoods. We support beekeepers to maintain environments that are good for bees, for biodiversity, and for people.

Livelihoods and biodiversity

All our work is driven by two overarching goals:

  • Promoting sustainable beekeeping to combat poverty and to build resilient livelihoods

  • Conserving and maintaining the environment for people and for bees.

Beekeeping is an economic activity accessible to, and beneficial for, disadvantaged and vulnerable communities. Selling honey can bring much needed income into the family – at little initial cost. And yet beekeeping does not harm the environment; indeed it sustains it. As the natural world is increasingly exploited and damaged in the pursuit of economic development, the urgency for sustainable development that supports environmental well-being is ever more essential. It is this understanding which drives our work.
