I wanted to let you in on a interior range that I spotted at TK Maxx and HomeSense, and its a trend with a heart! It’s hand-crafted homeware, sourced and made by remote communities in Western Uganda. This exclusive 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. Having been part of a trip to Africa which looked at just this kind of initiative a couple of years ago, it was one that was very close to my heart, so I wanted to share it with you today.
TK Maxx and HomeSense have been working in Uganda since 2008 enabling more than 10,000 children to go to school. Since the sustainable trade project started in 2011, there has been a 40% increase in children finishing primary school education. How amazing is that!
Please do pop along to you local store and grab yourself one of these beautiful pieces, and either style it up for your own home or give it as a gift to someone you love, passing on this story to them. I absolutely love the basket work, and I’m going to be buying myself a big basket for my trifid of a cheese plant next week!
