We aim to reach people we are currently finding it hard to reach by existing routes. For example, our paper BfD Journal is accessible only to those with a postal address or PO Box. Many beekeepers in our network do not have access to these, yet do have a phone.


How it works

Bees for Development 
will send regular broadcasts to everyone who signs up. We want many people to benefit. Each broadcast will provide a link for the subscriber to find out more about the topic.

A broadcast is typically a one-way communication. A subscriber will receive a broadcast message from BfD Connect, and they can reply if they wish.  They will not be able to connect with every other member of the group - their response will be read only by BfD Connect. We hope that we can encourage subscribers to engage this way, and send us information (photos and videos) that we may then broadcast widely. We will also use the broadcast group to update you when we create new resources, or to gain information through surveys, and to promote your events or projects to share with a wider audience.

After filling in the form, it is important that you add BfD Connect to your own WhatsApp contacts. Our number is +44 7310441890. This will ensure that your phone will receive our broadcasts when we send them.
