A Taste of Honey – beehive
In African countries like Tanzania, many families rely on the forest for charcoal, which they sell to earn a living. But years of exploiting this natural resource means there are no longer enough trees to sustain this way of life. Without an alternative means of earning money, these families face a desperate fight for survival.
Beehives from FARM-Africa will provide everything a poor family needs to begin a new way of life. The regular supply of honey their bees make can be eaten, sold to earn vital money and even used to treat minor ailments like coughs and colds. Plus, the forests will be given the chance to replenish.
This is one sweet gift you should definitely buy. But if you need further persuading, read how a beehive gave Marietta's story a happy ending.
