Sustainable beekeeping for resilient livelihoods

Making a difference worldwide


Our Mission is to teach best practices in beekeeping to secure sustainable and resilient livelihoods for vulnerable communities, at the same time as safeguarding and protecting the environment.

We are an Ethiopian resident charity based in Bahir Dar, Amhara.

Our objectives

  • Delivering beekeeping training to vulnerable communities to build sustainable and resilient livelihoods
  • Helping beekeepers to secure best value for their bee produce by accessing strong market chains, which are fair and rewarding
  • Ensuring that honey bee populations thrive as a result of environmental protection and the use of sustainable methods
  • Enabling beekeepers to access high quality, relevant information about methods, market opportunities and policy development.

This important work in Ethiopia was made possible with kind funding by Rowse.

Bees for development Ethiopia could not have begun work without this crucial support at start-up.
