The Zambia Gold Honey project began when ten Gonzaga students from the Comprehensive Leadership Program traveled to Zambia. Encouraged to build collaborative relationships within the community, they quickly developed hopes of bringing more opportunity to the region. After tasting pure African honey, students spent time with local bee farmers and the Zambezi Catholic Mission, exploring ways to provide a sustainable market for fair trade organic forest honey in the US. Since then, four interns travel each year to Zambia and work with the Zambia Gold Honey project. Sales profits go directly back to the community to support education. Zambia Gold Honey can be purchased on Gonzaga’s campus, at local retailers, or online at www.zambiagold.org.
The Zambia Gold Honey project was awarded a grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust to fund Social Entrepreneur Internships and was honored by the Jenzabar Foundation with a “Best in Class” award for its exceptional work in the areas of community service and humanitarianism.
