Meet the dedicated team.

 
 

Our Founders

Katherine Milling: Katherine first came to Zambia in 2014 as a Peace Corps volunteer. While working with her community in Northwestern Province, she was exposed to the history and impact of beekeeping on the people in the area. Katherine has been working with rural Zambian beekeepers in Field Operations since she finished Peace Corps, and is passionate about protecting the local environment.

Kyle Curry: Also a Peace Corps volunteer, Kyle completed his service in 2016. After his experience working with successful women's savings groups, Kyle wanted to continue working in rural communities in ways that create sustainable incomes for all. Living and working in the rural village of Ntambu, Kyle works with Katherine in the management of Field Operations.

Jonas Schuten: Jonas has been living and working in Zambia for over 10 years and grew up in a beekeeping family. He has worked in youth development, project management, and for the last 4 years in the honey industry. Jonas manages honey processing and sales, and strives for the highest quality honey at all times.
