Bees for Development

Development Practitioner

We work regularly with development practitioners in our information services and in many of our projects. 


At Bees for Development we help beekeepers to do more and better beekeeping in order to build sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families. We can provide information, resources and advice on projects, and we can keep new beekeepers in touch with relevant information through the Bees for Development Journal. We do not provide money or equipment, since we believe that the  projects most likely to succeed are those which are also the most sustainable, using resources available cheaply and locally.


We hope that you will be able to find the answers to your queries on our website.
