How your sponsorship money helps

Birke is 20 years old and has a one year old daughter. She lives in Ethiopia, where she is a member of the local ActionAid bee-keeping cooperative.

She says, “I am respected by the men in the cooperative as they elected me to the controlling committee. My vision is to have my own bee project to hand over to the next generation.”

In 2013 the group harvested their first honey, producing 46kg, and a year later in 2014 they harvested 240kg. The cooperative are confident that their harvests and their income will increase each year.
