What if a team building activity could benefit employees while stimulating income generation for people in developing countries at the same time? It can! In the U.S.-Mexico border community of Mexicali, a women’s cooperative is using beekeeping as a vehicle for alternative income generation. In this competitive csr team building activity, teams take part in a scavenger hunt and then construct beehive frames that will be donated to the women of Mexicali where they will be used to produce and sell hand & facial creams, beeswax candles, honey-flavored baked goods, healing salves, bee pollen and more. At the end of the day, teams have made an essential contribution to a community in need. Is your group up to the test?
We have teamed up with a non-profit community development organization, to create this activity. Your participation supports the work they have been performing in the northern Mexico-southern California border region for 30 years via an investment in its program beneficiaries (beehives) and its organization (capital investment), which ensures they can continue providing needed training and capital for years to come.
2 – 3 hours
Ballroom, conference room or outdoors (weather permitting). Tables and chairs for all the participants.
“Thanks for all your help coordinating the beehive build activity for Valent last week! Everything went well, and I think the group really got into the activity. We just dropped the beehives off at the Bee Biology facility at UC Davis, and they were thrilled to get the hives!”Valent U.S.A.
