Installing Beehives to Reduce Poverty

As part of our 10 Million Trees campaign, IllustrationX is helping to reduce poverty and increase access to education.

So far we are doing this in a really small way, but it is making a real difference to some peoples’ lives. For example, we install beehives so that the people who nurse the trees in our Ten Million Trees reforestation program, can sell the honey. This has more than doubled their average income and enabled many families to send their children to school for the first time.
