Donate a Beehive in Tanzania, Track its Progress, Get Honey

Oct. 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Promote environmental preservation and social impact by donating a beehive, or a whole apiary, to our rural Tanzanian beekeepers.

-You can personalize the hives with your name/color (Spiderman themed? problem. Let us know.)
-You will receive a picture of the installed hives with the donee
-You will have the hives' GPS coordinates and be able to track the hives' production and management via your browser and mobile app
-Each year you will receive 1 Kg of Honey harvested from your sponsored beehives for 3 years

Beekeeping is the fastest and lowest cost way to double household earnings in rural Tanzania that is also socially and environmentally sustainable.

Tanzania has over 2 million traditional artisanal beekeepers, but they suffer from lack of access to modern equipment, training, finance and markets. Tanzanian beekeeping has yet to meet its poverty-alleviating potential.

The benefits of our intervention extend far beyond charity. We aim to demonstrate that Tanzania has the human capacity and the natural resources to sustainably and ethically produce high quality bee products.

With your help we plan to show the government, development banks, exporters, retailers and financiers that investing in rural beekeeping is a win-win economically, socially and environmentally.

Why Are Bees So Great?

Beekeeping as a powerful and sustainable way to support rural livelihoods in the developing world.

Bees are not only a source of honey, wax and propolis (what bees use to seal their hives), but they are also essential pollinators, they help plants have sex to make fruits, vegetables and nuts for us to eat. In fact beekeeping has been shown to increase nearby agricultural yields by up to 300%.

Through the introduction and promotion of modern beekeeping we intend to improve  agricultural yields throughout the community. In turn, beekeepers and farmers will both benefit.

In fact, a recent study has shown that for every $1 USD invested into an East African honey enterprise there are $15.48 USD in social impact returns.
