Heroic Honey bees - pack of 25

£325.00

Product description

Living in poverty, families can struggle to put food on the table and support their loved ones. But the chance to earn a decent income can change everything. That’s why Oxfam provides training for farmers – in everything from beekeeping to composting – to help them produce and earn more. It’s why we provide chickens and pigs to help families get started. And we help farmers with brilliant, poverty-busting ideas to share them with others. Gifts like this one make it all possible. In Ghana, Oxfam has provided beekeeping equipment, hives and training, so families can produce honey to sell – giving people like Vivianne the chance to beat poverty.

Pack includes 25 Heroic Honey Bees gift cards and envelopes. Ecards will be supplied as a single ecard that can be forwarded to multiple recipients.

This gift supports our Making a Living (ML) projects.

Heroic Honey bees - pack of 25

Life is hard in Northern Ghana, and farmers like Vivianne can struggle to get by. But some heroic honeybees are helping turn things around. In the past, Vivianne had to watch her children go hungry. But a beekeeping field school, supported by Oxfam, helped change that. Now equipped with hives, equipment and skills, Vivianne is earning enough from her honey to start building a better future for her family. “People now come to buy our honey... and I’m saving for my children's education.”
