Araceli's story

Araceli, her family and the community of Benito Juarez in Mexico now have fresh hope for the future. 

Their community was destroyed after hurricane Wilma. Melipona bee keeping has been a tradition for many years in Maya communities in Mexico, but the species is endangered.

We’re helping the community conserve the endangered Melipona bee, and a group of women have formed a co-operative to sell honey products to the tourism industry.
