Bee World Project is a locally based non-profit organization that is working to improve the livelihoods of the world’s poorest populations.
The organization does so by introducing beekeeping on a village-wide scale, over an extended period of time, in order to help members of a community enhance a region’s economy. In its most basic terms, the “Bee World Team” supplies experienced beekeeping teachers, honeybee livestock, equipment, and on-going expertise to those in rural villages that may have little or no means of generating an income.

. . is how it brings people together and infuses laughter into a serious and delicate subject matter.
This is largely due to the people who have founded the organization: Shlomo a ‘Compassionate Clown Doctor’ and Bee Master John (President of the Honeybee Centre). Shlomo brings his love of life and people to each project, often wearing his red squeaky nose and colorful clothes - all to the amazement and joy of the villagers. As a Bee World Project Coordinator, John provides the technical expertise required to start and maintain a honeybee operation at a village, regional, or national level. Both have dedicated considerable time, resources and knowledge towards building an organization that will have lasting impact for many individuals around the world.
There are currently 7 Bee World Projects operating in 4 countries around the world. The goals are two-fold. First, to increase the number of beekeepers and beekeeping projects in order to create a beekeeping economy that will give thousands of people a chance to improve their livelihoods; and secondly, to continue doing good things for the only insect in the world that makes food for humans. And doesn’t the world desperately need both.
