It’s no secret that honey bees are in danger, and that that spells trouble for the whole of human kind. Without bees to pollinate the flowers, vital ecosystems will fail – and then we’ll be in real trouble.

Honey bees are also a potential source of income for people in poverty. By raising bees, making honey, and selling it, families in need can begin to raise themselves out of poverty – all while saving the earth. What could be better?

For just £12, you could provide someone with all the bee-keeping equipment they need to made honey, and help them learn vital marketing skills so that they can make the most of this opportunity.
