Adopt A Beehive & Change A Life! Mara and her friends in Montes de Maria Colombia have been struck by violence and poverty. The Beehives will provide Mara & #TheHoneyBeesLeague the means for producing & selling honey, earning two minimum wage salaries each. To reach this goal we need a total of 120 hives. One Beehive produces One million bees in 2.5 years. Bees are crucial in maintaining biodiversity & a mean that provides about a third of all the food we eat in the planet.

Montes de Maria have been vulnerable due to armed conflict in Colombia. Today, they’re immersed in poverty, with few opportunities of generating income in their territories. The temptation of entering illegal groups that deal in drugs to survive is high. In addition, the bees are disappearing at an alarming rate, putting our food security at risk as 70% of our daily food is pollinated by them.
#TheHoneyBeesLeague is the union of the bees, Mara and you. Through a social business of sustainable honey production, 2 minimum wage salaries will be generated for Mara and her friends. This will in turn provide access to better food, education and health, giving Mara the chance of overcoming poverty and violence. They will in turn commit to preserving and maintaining the bees, crucial for our survival in the planet.Join Today #BeeAHero
Our first goal is to obtain 120 beehives to benefit 10 families. The bees, in good conditions, grow rapidly in population, which will allow for the beehive communities to multiply and hence be able to benefit more families in the area. As a community business, a portion of the profits will be reinvested into strengthening this project and the families who maintain them. Mara & friends are an inspiration for the reassuring of peace in post-conflict areas to other youths. #AdoptABeeHive #DonateToBeekeeping

Planeta Rural Foundation was born from a diverse group of Latin American young social entrepreneurs, with one passion and goal: To create sustainable agricultural solutions and increase the quality of life on rural families through social businesses. Being aware of the need of breaking paradigms for innovative solutions to challenges such as food security, rural poverty, education and youth migration from the country to cities, they decided to empower rural youths as agents of change.
