Meet the Women

 

Meet our women beneficiaries

Central to Maasai Honey is the empowerment of women in rural villages of Tanzania. We focus on supporting those that come from underprivileged or impoverished backgrounds. The women are trained in beekeeping, processing, and production - equipping them with skills that support sustainable, income-generating opportunities. The structure creates a collaboration that is mutually beneficial; the women are able to improve their livelihood and welfare, while also contributing to the core activities and continued growth of Maasai Honey. Currently, all of our women beneficiaries come from Ololosokwan Village, where they are trained to work in our village apiaries and honey production headquarters. Proceeds from our honey sales and beeswax products benefit these women, their families, and communities.
