Our Purpose


The Apiary was founded out of the desire to break the poverty cycle of Rwandan beekeepers, their family and communities. Our purpose is to help the beekeepers derive a sustainable income to meet basic needs and realise aspirations, such as a child's education, they have for their family. 

A social impact enterprise, we work with a number of beekeeping cooperatives across Rwanda offering both apiculture expertise and micro-financing opportunities from which the beekeepers are able to earn a livelihood. The beekeepers receive a comprehensive beekeeping training program conducted by The Apiary’s team of experts who respect Rwanda’s apiculture heritage. 



Striving to inculcate involvement at a community level, we also welcome aspiring beekeepers who wish to learn the art of apiculture. By participating in various aspects of the beekeeping chain, communities can progress and rise from poverty.
