The Beekeepers Cooperative Association was founded by a group of beekeepers from Jenin Governorate in Palestine as an official body to protect their rights, achieve their goals, advance the beekeeping sector in Palestine and improve their economic and social situation.
The cooperative started in 2017 with 15 members. Today, its 40 members benefit from its unique services and products. The cooperative involves different segments of society, improves the local production process, uses local resources, and offers international services.
The cooperative carries out various social activities in the environmental field and strives to involve more women and young people. The cooperative believes that increasing the number of women members will lead to greater representation of women and the breaking down of stereotypes regarding beekeeping in Palestine. It also supports entrepreneurial projects that help the society expand income sources, reduce poverty, and combat the high youth unemployment rate in Palestine.
