TK Maxx, or in the states, TJ Maxx and its secondary company Homesense are making a difference in places like Uganda. To understand the impact of buying baskets for Uganda, just 2 baskets sends a child to school for an entire semester. Homesense has sent over 10,000 children to school with this shopping decision. Homesense offers a large and wonderful selection of home goods and toys at a more than reasonable price, so go ahead, pick up that item you didn’t know you needed.
- Last week, I was invited to check out the new handcrafted products from Uganda on display at the Edinburgh Homesense store.
- Income from selling a small number of products can make a big difference in the livelihoods of the Ugandans who make these products.
- We also checked out other household gems on sale in the massive store at big discounts.
“TK Maxx and Homesense have been working with communities in Uganda since 2008, and this particular initiative aims to help families increase their incomes”
