Resilient livelihoods for the landless

We are working with landless rural people in Amhara, Ethiopia, who are experiencing high levels of poverty and enabling them to establish secure and resilient livelihoods through beekeeping.

This project is based on a Leader-Follower training model that Bees for Development Ethiopia has been developing over a number of years. We are working with a cohort of 48 enterprising young people who have already demonstrated commitment to, and a measure of success in beekeeping. They are being helped to advance their skills and build vibrant sustainable enterprises, based on bees, beekeeping, beekeeping service provision and trade in bee products.

The Lead Beekeepers have willingly taken on the added responsibility of helping others to acquire bees, skills and marketing know-how, and in doing so are passing on their knowledge and skills to other vulnerable people.

This project is funded by UK Aid Direct through a Small Charities Challenge Fund grant.
