The big give

The specialist international beekeeping organisation

Big Give Christmas Challenge

Your donation will be doubled during the Big Give Christmas Challenge 28 Nov - 5 Dec 2017

Details for our 2018 project can be viewed here

We will restore natural forest and honey bee populations in northern Ethiopia through urgent, ambitious re-wilding. This work is needed to strengthen the livelihoods and tackle the poverty of the hundreds of people living in the globally-important Lake Tana Biosphere Reserve.

Please help us reach our online target of £20,000. This will be doubled during the Big Give Christmas Challenge to help us raise our project target of £40,000.
