Bees for Development

Non-Governmental Organisations

Much of our work at Bees for Development is undertaken in partnership with NGO's throughout the world. We are happy to work with civil society organisations and with communities, and we always work in practical and participatory ways to meet the needs of our clients. Our unique knowledge base of sustainable apiculture, rural development and the honey and beeswax trade enables us to find ways to enhance the contribution of beekeeping to building resilient and sustainable livelihoods.
