Our theory of change professes that many smallholder farmers engage in poor farming methods and lack an assured market for their products, which has condemned many of them to a vicious cycle of poverty.
We believe that Impact Investing while making a decent profit can tremendously change this by providing sustainable livelihoods to smallholder farmers through supporting them in their farming efforts in providing beekeeping equipment and advisories on modern beekeeping while also assuring of market access for honey, nuts and seeds. We have impacted thousands of farmers, sourcing from over 3000 in Kenya and 1000 in South Sudan.
Given the African patriarchal family settings women and girls are more exposed to worrisome livelihoods. Honey Care strives to promote the women enterprise through deliberately working with women honey aggregators. Our strategy and business model is to operate in effective, profitable and scalable solutions to sustainable livelihoods while preserving the environment with a bias to women and girls. Out of the seven honey aggregators we work with six are women.
