OUR IMPACT STORY

We understand that sustainable economic development means creating financial value. It means improving social conditions and it means doing it in a way that supports not exploits the environment.

We have a commitment to sustainable livelihoods while preserving the environment, with emphasis on smallholder farmers, women, girls and nutrition.

Support for smallholder farmers

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.

Women Empowerment

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.

Proper Nutrition

Concerns have been variously raised by public health authorities in Kenya on lack of essential macronutrients in conventional foods for certain age groups and gender. We provide healthy honey based products that are not only nutritious but also give essential macronutrients at an affordable price. All our products are natural, healthy and nutritious, with no artificial additives.

Environment Conservation

We are committed towards making a contribution in environment conservation. This we do through encouraging farmers to take up beekeeping which they can easily combine with other farming activities and reap the benefits of cross pollination by bees.
