A program to support beekeeping traditions in Mexico…
When it comes to always putting women at the forefront, Guerlain’s contributions go far beyond International Women’s Day. The historic house works continuously to raise awareness about the empowerment of women and bees, as well as the environment in general.
Since its first launch in 2020, the program Women for Bees has been a key driver of change for trainee beekeepers around the world, from France and Cambodia to Mexico, Japan and Italy, in close collaboration with UNESCO and, starting this year, with local reference NGOs.
Guerlain and Angelina Jolie
The evolution year after year of this work continues now that Angelina Jolie inaugurates a new phase of the Women for Bees Program for supporting beekeeping traditions among Maya women and addressing dangers to the Melipona bee population with Guerlain in collaboration with the Foundation Selva Maya and Belmond Maroma.
Guerlain and Angelina Jolie traveled to the Yucatan Peninsula in February to kick off a new training initiative and conservation of several years with the Selva Maya Foundation (FSM), a non-profit organization committed to the protection of Melipona beecheii, the sacred bees of the ancient Mayan civilization.
This dedication to the empowerment of women through program Women for Bees will continue through 2023 and the next years with other beekeeper trainings for women in Rwanda, China and more.
today, in this International Women’s Day, Guerlain invites you to review three years of concrete action to empower women through bee education and training (their welfare, conservation and repopulation) and sustainable professional activity driven by experience that has resulted from experience.
