Bee Keeping

goHoney - a business for a social purpose

At Friends of Green Communities we believe that social business in all its many forms is one of the most important ways of improving the world that we live in. we therefore use entrepreneurial principals to organize, mobilize and manage our projects that have a social mission at its core and the goals of creating both economic and social value of which goHoney is no exception

About the Project

goHoney is a Ugandan social business initiative under GoSmile Uganda that focuses on conservation of wildlife protected areas and sustainable beekeeping to combat poverty, build sustainable and resilient livelihoods.

Our purpose is to empower the rural poor to do beekeeping in order to produce and sell as much honey as possible. Beekeeping is a means to diversify livelihoods and make the best use of resources available to the families that we work with. A diversified livelihood is a more secure one.

We support beekeepers to maintain environments that are good for bees, for biodiversity, and for people. We encourage farmers to make simple, low-cost beehives so that more people can harvest and sell honey, turning natural resources into sustainable livelihoods with great benefit for the wider environment.

“Becoming more socially conscious in the way we do business at goHoney is empowerment and sustainability at its finest for the communities we support”
