Jinja, Uganda. Since the 1970’s Uganda’s cotton exports decreased due to the civil war in northern Uganda. In 2009, the non–profit Invisible Children started a cotton initiative to help rebuild this industry and create opportunity for the whole supply chain — farmer to manufacturer.
Ben Thomson, VP International Development, Invisible Children. “Apolis is on the forefront of an era of new philanthropy by integrating sustainable development into their supply chain and bringing a whole new meaning to corporate social responsibility.”
Los Angeles, California. In June 2010 Apolis and Invisible Children continued their Philanthropic luggage offering to ensure a consistent partnership for Uganda’s revitalized cotton industry.
