Los Angeles, Sep 20 (TIWN) Hollywood star Angelina Jolie was named the "godmother" of the Women for Bees program earlier this year, which aims to train 50 women in beekeeping within the next five years, as well as building 2,500 hives in 25 Unesco biosphere reserves and restocking 125 million bees.

The 25 Unesco biosphere reserves are located in countries including France, Italy, Russia, Slovenia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and China.  Jolie, who has also completed humanitarian work as a Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency, has unveiled her plans to travel to Cambodia in 2022 to establish the next phase of the program in the region of Samlout, where she has a home, reports femalefirst.co.uk.  The actress said: "We wanted to make sure there was at least 50 women from 25 biospheres, to understand the biospheres and why it was important to map out and build the team.  "We are going to be working further with Unesco to understand how to expand how we are working with some of these countries and biospheres -- the next training will be in Samlout, in my home in Cambodia."
