Support Small Farms
Honey in Ethiopia
In the Jabitehnan, Dangila, Lay Armachiho and Dembia districts of Ethiopia, bee keepers and pepper farmers are struggling to improve the lives of their families and communities within an environment of limited government support, increased competition and insecure agricultural markets. Market demand for honey and pepper is high, however, new small farmers lack the market knowledge to enter the existing markets and compete effectively.
Your gift will be used to give small farmers in rural Ethiopia new market opportunities to sell their honey and pepper products domestically and globally. Specifically, IDE will use your gift to provide farmer groups with business skills, technical support, and solid market information. These tools will allow small farmers to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty through effective participation in local, national and global agricultural markets.
