Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Beekeeping in Latin America

We are developing a web-based resource with tutorials and other information that coffee-farmers and others in Latin America can use to get started in beekeeping. We are also building a community of practice through this site and our in-house beekeeping experts, working with co-op and farmer associations, government and extension representatives, NGO partners, and honey companies, to identify and share best practices, share research, and promote the benefits to coffee growers of adding commercial beekeeping to diversify income, improve nutrition, and enhance livelihoods.

Economically disadvantaged people

We work with coffee-farming co-ops and organizations in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Colombia to help them identify the causes of seasonal hunger, create strategic, long-term plans, and implement community-appropriate strategies to fight hunger.
