The global shortage of honeybee products, especially those that comply with raw and fair-trade standards, means that there are exceptional opportunities for trained, committed beekeepers in these unspoilt areas.Beekeeping as a form of agriculture has an overwhelmingly positive impact on the natural environment, including pollination and improved yields of many food crops.
African Honey Bee (AHB) is a Christian Social Enterprise that enables families from severely disadvantaged rural communities to build sustainable micro-beekeeping businesses – producing raw honey of unrivalled taste and quality, using environmentally-friendly and ethical beekeeping practises.
- In the last two years we have trained 1200 people in Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal
- 425 (and counting) of these beekeepers (and their families) are actively keeping bees and many have started producing and selling honey.
- skills development - rural job opportunities
- empowering communities
- traceable produce, superior raw honey
Communities be set firm on a path of controlling their own lives and providing for their families through their own efforts, no longer dependent on others for their wellbeing.
