“…all profits go back to the workers and maintenance of the farm.”
A sweet mission.
The Orphan’s Refuge Honey Farm was founded by Bill Passaglia in 2017 after a mission’s trip he took to Zambia with Hands on Africa.
Like many people, Bill was moved by the great poverty and child abandonment that has plagued Zambia.
Passaglia recognized that one of the reasons Zambia has remained in poverty is, ironically, the over-abundance of goodwill that has continued to flood the country from generous donations. Gifts of clothes, shoes, food, and other necessities to the country became so commonplace that those native industries went out of business and put many Zambians out of work permanently.
Bill’s idea was simple. Create an industry that is run by Zambians and whose profit directly benefits Zambians. Bill purchased property near Saint Mary’s Mission in the Lufwanyama Province, an area abundant in native flora, and paid young men recently released from local orphanages, with no hope of employment, to construct and disperse the hives. Today, the honey collected by them is sold in Zambia and all profits go back to the workers and maintenance of the farm.
The Orphan’s Refuge Honey Farm is a self-sustaining model that brings employment and dignity to Zambians.
