We want to see a fashion industry that enables people to thrive. To make this happen, we fund initiatives are in line with our theory of change and that support our key programmes: accelerating sustainable cotton, improving working conditions, eradicating forced and child labour, and fostering circular fashion. We also work with C&A to strengthen communities both in retail and in sourcing countries.

Here are some of the initiatives we've funded, and some of the lives and businesses we've transformed. You can explore more here. Or take a look at our FAQs to find answers to questions we're commonly asked.
