For centuries bees and other pollinators have benefited people, plants and the planet. Today should be a reminder of the importance of bees and their essential role in our prosperity and life on Earth. Beekeeping has a long tradition around the world, and it can help families without land generate income to support themselves. From Afghanistan to Ethiopia, WFP supports beekeeping projects giving people a steady source of income, livelihood and hope.
