Anglican Aid partners with Honeyworld to empower local farmers in Zimbabwe to set up, manage, harvest, package and sell good quality honey.
Honeyworld staff run professional beekeeping training services for community members free of charge, and offer a free bee hive, made in their own carpentry workshop, to any participants eager to set up their own business.
Honeyworld also facilitates connections between farmers and the local and national export market. From humble beginnings in 2016, the project is now receiving 3 tonnes of honey each quarter from its outgrowers.
Supporting pastors and their families
Since the collapse of industry in Zimbabwe due to the hyperinflation crisis of the 2000s, 85% of the population of Zimbabwe is part of the informal workforce, with little to no job security, and 72.3% live under the poverty line. The devastation caused by Cyclone Idai in 2019 added to the economic suffering and instability.
Pastors and evangelists working to strengthen the church find it exceedingly difficult to support their families, as their congregations are not often in a position to give much to the offertory. Giving pastors a sustainable way to earn and income and continue their gospel work is one of Honeyworld’s priorities.
The project has also set up apiaries in schools and in one Bible college, and plans to continue expanding.
