In June she will travel to Provence for apiculture training and join the first 10 women to take part in the Women for Bees program. The initiative founded by UNESCO and Guerlain aims to ultimately train 50 women from five biosphere reserves to become beekeepers.
“Women are so capable. And there are a lot of women in areas that haven’t had a chance,” Jolie said. “But they’re hungry to learn, they have great business instincts. To have a network, to learn how to be the best beekeepers with the latest science and methods, and to have something to make and sell. It’s not just about To teach women, it’s about learning from women around the world who have different practices. “
As she noted, “When a woman learns a skill, she teaches other women and other men and their children. So if you really want to do something and make it bigger, find a woman and help her understand the problem, and she becomes great work hard to make sure everyone in the community knows.
