CONGO BEEHIVE COALITION

DBCFSN is a proud member of the Congo Beehive Coalition. The coalition represents a group of international NGO and non-profit organizations, partnered to bring hope to communities that have been under severe distress due to a number of reasons including civil wars. We believe beekeeping can empower women and children through a pilot project planned for North Kivu.
