Beekeeping and honey production are unique ways to emancipate women who are socially and economically disadvantaged in both the developing and developed world.
We will provide funding for training women in the art of beekeeping and purchase equipment for them to start their own hives and to extract the honey, wax and honeycomb from the beehives.
We will provide training in business communications, negotiation strategies, business planning, operations, finance, logistics and marketing.
Our mission is to enable women to sustain themselves and their children.
We will instill confidence in women and provide them with skills that can be passed on to future generations. Concurrently, we will employ WIHPA to restore honey to its rightful place as the most precious and revered food in the world. In this regard, we will also be funding studies into the health benefits of honey to raise the economic value of honey, which will in turn help to make beekeeping more lucrative for the beneficiaries of our work.
We will also be focused on the preservation of bee populations around the world which are in jeopardy to protect our environment and sustain our global food supply.
