Honeybee Keeping Kit
Protection for beekeepers
Traditional beekeeping is dangerous work -- and typically, man’s work. But in places like rural Zimbabwe, where unemployment is high, beekeeping can be an economic lifeline for struggling farmers. The IRC trains women as well as men in modern beekeeping methods and helps them to market and sell the honey they harvest. $95 can provide essential protective gear for an aspiring beekeeper, including a veiled hat, jacket, overalls and boots that shield against bee stings.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
