Valentine's Day bees
Here’s how you make Valentine’s Day extra special. You take an extra-long stroll on the bee-ach. You tell them they are looking particularly bee-utiful. And then you present them with this generous gift from the heart – that helps people in PNG access a vital income. It’s sure to make their heart bee-at a little faster.
How This Helps
Bees are helping families in Papua New Guinea to earn a living. Together with our local partners, Oxfam provides low-cost equipment for a family and trains them in beekeeping. An innovative mobile service buys the honey direct from the farm, saving the beekeepers from transporting their hives to town. With money from the honey, the family can buy medicines and send their kids to school.
“I am very grateful to Oxfam who has … helped me see how to make a successful, sustainable business … We help beekeepers look after the bees... [Now] they will be able to pay for school fees.”
— Kelly Inae, owner of Mountain Honey, Papua New Guinea
