Hot Buzz – smokers for beekeepers
In Tanzania, some families traditionally rely on the forest to make a living – for example, manufacturing charcoal from the trees. But years of eroding natural resources mean this way of life is no longer possible. Without an alternative way of earning money, it is unlikely that these families or the forest will survive.
Beekeeping equipment from FARM-Africa – such as smokers, which allow honey to be removed safely from hives – will help a family to make a living from keeping bees. The honey these furry little creatures provide can be eaten or sold at a good price to local people. And the forest will have a chance to replenish.
This gift will get everyone buzzin'! And if you need another reason to buy, read how beekeeping equipment helped to give Martha's story a happy ending.
