Our Sustainable Trade Programme
Our made to do good range
The Cotton Co-op was the first to be certified as Fairtrade in East Africa. We use Ugandan cotton to make our Red Nose Day t-shirts, supporting Comic Relief.
Our beautiful handmade baskets are made using traditional techniques. The income from just two baskets could pay for a child's schooling for a term.
We work with over 1000 coffee farmers in the Rwenzori mountains. As a result, farmers now earn up to 20% more for their coffee crop.
Our single-origin, fairtrade chocolate is produced from cocoa grown by Ugandan farmers, which brings vital income to help send their children to school.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Uganda has experienced several closures of borders, schools and universities.
TK Maxx/Homesense continues to support Western Ugandan communities with grants to support education and trade through the Rwenzori Sustainable Trade Centre set up by TK Maxx/Homesense.
