Education and Innovation for a Sustainable Future
Bees are critical to healthy ecosystems. Much of the earth’s plant growth is a result of bee pollination.
Beekeeping enterprise is an excellent source of income in rural communities. We partner with the Maasai Beekeeping Initiative, a community-based organization, for the provision of hives, practical beekeeping husbandry, training and marketing local honey and other bee products to stores and safari lodges.
Our beekeeping social enterprise module assists schools, pupils, community members and women’s groups with modern apiary techniques; including the provision of Langstroth hives and necessary equipment for apiary management.
Our beekeeping module is a 5 year partnership between schools and women’s groups. Through proper conservation and management, honey sales from a 5 hive operation can result in expansion to 25 to 40 hives in four to five years and annual income exceeding $4000.
