Keeping Bee’s can be an extremely profitable enterprise for smallholder farmers in Kenya. Not only can Farmers produce and trade honey, but Bees can be used as a method of Human Animal Conflict management. 🐝

Haller Park is a beautiful hidden gem in Mombasa. It boasts many different species of stunning plants and animals. Activities include feeding the giraffes and watching the crocodiles and hippos being fed. Haller Park is a great place for a family to enjoy a day out. #hallerpark #zoo #park #animals #mombasa #kenya #holiday #travel #myluxetravel
Agriculture is Kenya's biggest industry, with over 5 million smallholder farmers in the country. Many have minimal knowledge of sustainable farming techniques and live on unproductive land in areas far from the services of agricultural extension workers. With 80% of these smallholder farmers being women, we believe the Haller Farmers App can help to reduce the gender divide by giving women access to our proven farming knowledge and expertise.
In 2014, to complement our successful work and on-the-ground presence, we launched the Haller Farmers App. The App builds on the technological revolution taking place across sub-Saharan Africa and puts our 50 years of proven, sustainable farming techniques - all of which are low cost, organic and easily replicable - directly in the hands of smallholder farmers.
17,100 Kenyan children under 5 die each year and 90% of those cases are related to dirty water. Our bio-loos are an effective, low-tech way of preventing contamination of the water sources we put in place, encouraging basic hygiene practices and improving health and wellbeing.
In the rural communities Haller supports, children rarely go to school. We help these communities set up their own schools, to give children basic education, which is vital to help them escape a life of poverty. Not only the children benefit but parents can also request specific lessons to improve literacy.
‘Haller is not about exercise books and building schools, but about teaching a new generation about living life in balance with the environment on which they depend.’ - Edward Oately, MBE
As well as offering training at the farm, we also work within communities and encourage peer to peer training, so our impact grows organically as communities learn from each other.
