Fabretto Beekeeping Program

Fabretto understands the importance of connecting vocational education and on-the-job training. Their technical education program (known as SAT in Spanish) does just that, empowering students to develop and sustain livelihoods that, ultimately, will help them break the cycle of poverty. Through the program's beekeeping initiative, students receive training on the behavior and care of different types of bees, the treatment of the panels, and the process of collecting honey. They are taught valuable skills that help them generate income while learning.

Meet the Artisans

Ever

Farming and agriculture have been a part of 19-year-old Ever’s family for as long as he can remember. The fourth generation farmer grew up helping his father grow beans and corn. In 2017, the young farmer joined Fabretto’s SAT program and acquired agricultural knowledge with a specialization in beekeeping. He also developed entrepreneurial skills, which prompted him to organize a honey cooperative with other young people. Not only is he now able to help his father improve his farming techniques, but he is also able to produce 100% organic, high-quality honey and knows how to maintain healthy bees and hives.
