The initiative for Bee with us comes from Staffan Nordstrand, and has evolved over many years of travelling in poor regions around the world, mainly Asia. After several years of fact-finding for my three documentary novels, the publication of The River Trilogy about trafficking, began. In 2013, the final part of the trilogy was published. The books and the Bee with us project are parts of an effort to work against trafficking and the prostitution industry, that exploits poverty and vulnerability.
Me, and many of my colleagues and friends, have found that surprisingly little of the donations needed to deal with these problems reach their intended destination. This despite there being so many people wishing to influence the situation in a positive direction. There are many local organizations doing a fantastic job around the world. They are in need of funds, but information about them does not reach the donors.
