Bees For Development
Agriculture that is wholly beneficial for the environment and significant for people living in remote places with few finacial resources?

We are not talking about a new idea but an activity in which humans have participated for thousands of years, an that holds an important place in societies world-wide.

We Are talking about BEEKEEPING! " Effective beekeeping leads to improved pollination of crops and better yields. In addition honey, beeswax and other products provided by honeybees create food and income"

The Troy Trust is a UK-based charity providing help to people in developing countries to help themselves through the valuable craft of beekeeping.

Help from The Troy Trust takes the form of information and advise for beekeepers and projects in developing countries. Information on all aspects of beekeeping is provided: how to build hives,how to manage tropical bees in a sustainable way, and how to create livelihoods.
