Celebrating the Right to Life, Food, Shelter and Wellbeing, for Women and Bees in Adversity
To celebrate the right to life, food, shelter and wellbeing, for women and bees in adversity and to recognise the role of women in biodiversity, Sabiha Malik imagined a model that could be implemented in areas where socio-economic inequalities constrain the capacity of the poorest and most vulnerable women living in hardship conditions.
Women as Designers of Change
In 2019-2020 ,The World Bee Project offered apiculture education and training to 15 vulnerable Palestinian women and established apiaries for them on the rooftops of their homes, enabling them to create promising new livelihoods for themselves through the sale of honey and ‘rooftop bee tourism’.

The World Bee Project collaborated with beekeeper and Steiner educator Yossi Aud for implementation of the ‘Bees in East Jerusalem’ programme. Yossi collaborates with Palestinian charitable organisation in social areas in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority. Our project was supported by Matan Israeli of Muslala, architect Tareq Nasser, and local NGOs.
It was funded by the Sobell Foundation and other donors.
