- April 1, 2024 - (excerpt)

The Bees for Development Green Match campaign emerges as a beacon of hope in the face of the devastating consequences of deforestation that lead to soil erosion, land degradation, and severe hardships for local communities in Zimbabwe.

Bees for Development proposes the powerful solution of beekeeping. Inextricably linked, bees and trees create a relationship that can transform lives. The campaign seeks to protect precious forests and empower local people in Zimbabwe. This will be done by implementing forest protection measures, enabling community members to earn money through sustainable beekeeping and establishing a nursery for bee-friendly trees.

Your donation matters, all donations between 18-25 April 2024 will be DOUBLED!
