Bee Empowered

In Tanzania, one of the world’s poorest countries, people face a daily battle to put food on the table, clothe their families and send their children to school. It’s in these desperate situations that Traidcraft and partners are working to change people’s lives forever.

We’re helping beekeepers to work together in cooperatives so they can access benefits like group training, stronger negotiating power and the security of combined savings. There’s also a particular emphasis supporting women to generate their own income from bee keeping activities.

Our Bee Empowered project is continuing Traidcraft’s work in the Tabora region of Tanzania and reaching a new target area - the impoverished Rufiji district. About 16,500 people are benefiting from the project.
