Contributions from our generous supporters help to further the initiatives of Maasai Honey. Funds allow us to expand our apiaries, conduct valuable trainings, and acquire necessary equipment. The addition of hives supports our honeybee conservation efforts and also increases our capacity to reach more underserved women. We are a registered NGO in Tanzania as well as a non-profit organization registered under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code; all donations to Maasai Honey are tax deductible, as allowed by United States law.
Donate a Hive
Every additional hive helps us to increase honey production, grow the project and support our women beneficiaries. We currently have around 100 hives, distributed across 4 apiaries in Ololosokwan Village, Tanzania. Your hive donation can become the newest addition!
When you donate a hive, a new Langstroth beehive with your name on it will be added to our apiary!
Each year we will send you an update on your hive, so that you can learn how much honey your bee colony has produced!
With more beehives, Maasai Honey is able to:
Increase production capacities for both honey and beeswax.
Support the conservation of native, East African bees.
Empower more underserved women as beekeepers and honey processors.
*Donating a hive also makes a great gift for bee lovers and philanthropists!*
The cost to donate a hive is $95 USD
