Farms in Honduras once thrived with rich coffee plants and maize, but rising temperatures and heavy rains now make it harder for the crops to grow. Multiple droughts and hurricanes have led to failing crops and this is forcing many communities from their land. 

This enforced migration is having catastrophic consequences on communities in Honduras. Family members left behind are vulnerable to crime and violence. Many children are missing out on education and risk falling in with drug-trafficking circles.


...yet there is still hope

Beekeeping is saving livelihoods, land and futures in Honduras

You may already know that bees are amazing!

These small but mighty creatures support ecosystems and protect our environment. 

Keeping bees is not only proven to be a stable business venture in Honduras, providing vital incomes and untapped skills, but the ripple effects are huge. The wider impact spans everything from creating better ecosystems to combatting food shortages and mass migrations. 

Bee's may be small but their impact is mighty

Maria and Jose

Maria and Jose are a wife and husband beekeeping team, both with entrepreneurial spirits. 

There aren’t many women active in beekeeping in Honduras. In many parts of the country, woman lack opportunities and face occupational segregation. Maria is the first woman in her community to become a beekeeper. 

Maria and Jose turned to beekeeping just over three years ago after losing 60% of their coffee crops to Hurricane Iota. Now, honey produces a steady annual yield of 120 bottles which they sell at £6/€7 a bottle.

I decided to start harvesting honey, and said to my husband, I’m going with you! I managed to harvest four beehives. I had a curiosity in my mind, and I need to fulfil that.
