Honey Makes Money

When you think of Bóthar you might think of our dairy cow and dairy goat programmes, but in actual fact, one of the most effective programmes that we use to help the very poorest of the poor in the developing world is our nutritious Honey Bee programme.

Honey Bees are very suitable for people who might not be able to care for a larger animal. When space and money are at a premium, bees are the perfect solution as Honey Bees require almost no space and once established are inexpensive to maintain.

Every participant receives regular training from other established bee-keepers in the group and from a local agricultural advisory group who help with the practical and theoretical aspects of bee-husbandry, the production of honey and the sale of wax. With these skills, participants can earn an income by selling surplus honey and wax at the local market. As is the Bóthar way, once a participant is established and earning an income they need to pass on the gift to another family waiting to join the programme and supply them with three beehives.
