Nutrition Mission raises $100,000 for Busibo

Thanks to support of our loyal customers, we have reached our $100,000 target for the #NUTRITION MISSION , which will help fund an educational program to empower women through healthy and sustainable futures. 

Earlier this year, we teamed up with Cotton On Body (BODY) and nutrition expert Lola Berry to launch the #NUTRITION MISSION.  Together, we set out to raise $100,000 so that we could fund a program for over 60 women in the rural village of Busibo, which would provide them with nutritional knowledge and cooking skills and most importantly, help prevent malnutrition.

By simply purchasing a Cotton On Foundation product during April and May, our BODY customers have helped us raise $100,000 to fund this powerful program. THANK YOU!

Cotton On Foundation General Manager, Tim Diamond was moved by the support of our customers and excited about the prospects for the communities in Southern Uganda.

“I’m always so inspired by the passion that our team and customers show towards our projects, and I know that the people in Busibo village and surrounding communities will be incredibly thankful,” he said.

“Although the soil and rainfall in Uganda provides good growing conditions for vegetables, most people simply don’t have the knowledge to harvest crops or cook. By providing these women with access to an educational program that empowers them with these skills, we will help prevent malnutrition whilst also providing them with skills that they can use to generate an income,” explained Diamond.

Our team heads to Uganda this month, to see the program in action so we’ll let you know how this will impact the lives of those who take part in the #NUTRITION MISSION and will help benefit the wider community.  

A huge THANK YOU to everyone for your incredible support!
