Who are we?
We are a team of volunteers from Enactus Manchester, a society that aims to support and transform the lives of people in need. Golden Honey is an international project based in San Ignacio (Peru), which has been running for the past 4 years. Last year, we had the privilege to send a team of volunteers to Peru to help honey farmers rebrand their product, and increase their income. This year, we would like to continue working with the local honey farmers by providing them with the information to build and maintain the machinery required for efficient honey farming. We also would like to expand our reach to other regions of Peru in order to empower a greater number of lives.
Why is our project important?
- For the local farmers, honey represents a significant proportion of their income
- Our project is making a sustainable impact to the community of 30,000 people
- Our continuous efforts have improved the level of financial and marketing knowledge in the community
What we've done so far
- We rebranded famers' honey with new packaging
- We established new sales channels for farmers in Peru
- We initiated a sales programme with a school in Lima
- Our efforts have impacted the communities in San Ignacio by increasing their income by £350 per year
- We are in an active search for reliable partners in Peru to increase the impact of the help we offer
This year, we want to send a team to Peru, San Ignacio to help honey and coffee farmers develop and expand their business. We identified three aspects our trip should cover:
- Provide farmers with basic financial and marketing workshops
- Design and construct a flow hive & beeswax foundation press
- Look for new opportunities to expand our project for next year
Where will the money go?

- Send 2 volunteers to San Ignacio £400 x2 (airplane ticket) + £100 x2 (food + other expenses)
