Developing sustainable trade in Uganda

Working with over 4,000 local people in the Rwenzori region of Uganda, our Sustainable Trade Programme was developed in 2011 to enable parents to send their children to school.

Our aim at TK Maxx and Homesense is to help parents ensure their children complete primary education. We do this by helping them increase their income from the production and sale of coffee, cocoa, cotton and crafts. We’re proud to be able to sell their products in our stores, from award-winning Rwenzori coffee to traditional handmade crafts.

From growing cocoa and coffee beans to hand weaving beautiful baskets, our ‘made to do good’ range of products gives parents in Uganda sustainable ways to raise their income so they can afford to send their children to school. Head in store and check out the full range today.


Our ‘Made To Do Good’ range


Our single origin, fairtrade chocolate is produced from cocoa grown by Ugandan farmers, which brings vital income to help send their children to school.


We work with over 1,000 coffee farmers in the Rwenzori mountains. As a result, farmers now earn up to 20% more for their crop.


Our beautiful baskets are handmade using traditional techniques. Income from just two baskets pays for a child’s schooling for a term.

Together we’ve achieved so much

Since the project began over 4000 families have benefited from increased income and more children are completing primary school education. When you include their families too - over 28,000 people are indirectly impacted.
