This range is part of an initiative to help some of the most disadvantaged families increase their incomes so they can afford to send their children to school.

HomeSense and TK Maxx have been working in the war torn Rwenzori region of Uganda since2008 enabling more than 10,000 children to go to school by supporting families and
farming/weaving communities to improve their skills producing cotton, cocoa, coffee and craftsto sell on the international market. Eight years on, school attendance has risen from 53% of children to 94%.

How fabulous is that! And the products are lovely too


There are drums, spoons, soapdishes and coffee and I adore the baskets particularly. They have gorgeous geometric designs and are bold and bright and natural. The sale of just 2 baskets can send a child to school for a whole term so you have every excuse to indulge.
