Support and training for beekeepers

The problem

Many beekeeping farmers in Uganda and neighbouring countries lack adequate access to national and international markets as well as training opportunities to improve their skills.

The Solution 

Golden Bees provides a variety of services to train and support beekeepers, they sell their honey and beeswax to both local and export markets. The social business provides a variety of products and services to rural bee farmers in Uganda. Such as packaging and processing of honey,  Propolis, and beeswax. Moreover, it supplies beekeeping equipment and provides beekeeper training.

The Impact  

They are already creating income for over 2,600 rural bee-farmers, increasing the incomes of rural beekeepers in Uganda by over 400% since 2014. By financing Golden Bees we can offer beekeepers a dignified hand out of poverty.
