Developing sustainable trade in Uganda

DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE TRADE IN UGANDA

How sustainable trade is helping families in Ugandan communities

Working with over 4000 local people, our Sustainable Trade Programme was developed in 2011 to enable parents to increase their incomes so they could afford to send their children to school.

Our aim at Homesense and TK Maxx 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.

Our Made to do Good range
Craft

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.

Coffee

We work with over 1000 coffee farmers in the Rwenzori mountains. As a result, farmers could earn up to 20% more for their coffee crop.

Chocolate

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

Together we’ve achieved so much

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

Here at Homesense, we’re not quite like anywhere else.

Whether you’re a modernist, maximalist, Scandi-enthusiast or in a rhapsody over boho, we’ve got aisles and aisles of everyday essentials and fab finds, all at irresistible prices.
From must haves to just-loves and *shrugs shoulders* just-because, switch up your space until it’s just the way you want it. We don’t have a house style, so you can play with yours.

then please contact us at

Our customer service team is working remotely and although we can answer calls, it is taking us a little longer, so email is best.
