We’re really excited to announce that sustainable kids clothing brand, Cooee Kids, will be supporting Chance for Childhood through their summer collection launching on 1st June!
Cooee Kids will be donating £2 from the sale of t-shirts from their new Summer 2020 season, purchased either online or in-store, to Chance for Childhood.
Cooee Kids is a sustainable kids clothing brand that makes beautiful everyday kids clothes with social responsibility and good ethics at its core to ensure that the entire production process supports the Ugandan people who make the clothes – from the farmers to the seamstresses. All products are made sustainably from 100% Africa cotton (100% CmiA-Certified).
Cooee’s generous donation will go towards our work in Uganda where we work with our partner, Passion for Community, to ensure children have access to fair justice and rehabilitation services as well as supporting young people access to employment and food. Agriculture is by far Uganda’s largest employer with 86% of Ugandans living in rural regions relying heavily on subsistence farming. With Passion for Community we provide 3-month practical training courses and mentoring opportunities on agribusiness and entrepreneurship to vulnerable young people.
During our COVID-19 response we have supported Passion for Community to provide food 2 month’s worth of food supplies to 60 rural, vulnerable families who have been hit the hardest by the lockdown in Uganda.
With our shared ethical commitment, we couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with Cooee for their summer collection.
Anna, Co-Founder of Cooee Kids, said:
“We are proud to partner with Chance for Childhood and give our customers the opportunity to give back to the Ugandan people through their purchase of our t-shirts this summer. The work that Chance for Childhood does in Uganda is very close to our hearts as all our cotton is grown and processed here. We can’t wait to give back to the people in Uganda who are impacted severely by this global crisis. This will hopefully make a positive contribution to their livelihoods during these difficult times”
We are delighted to work with Naomi, Anna and everyone in the Cooee Kids team and look forward to keeping you updated about the partnership.
