Helpful honey bees


Honey bees can help beat poverty.

In rural Africa farmers can sometimes struggle to generate an income from the land. This is where helpful honey bees come in, creating a life-changing alternative livelihood.

Your gift could help a farmer establish a beekeeping business with the tools and training they need to harvest their honey, sell it to the right market, and have enough money to send their children to school.

How it works

Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.

  • Choose an alternative gift
  • If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
  • Or, we can deliver a blank card card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting

All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
