Sustainability is a core part of our identity. Ever since the creation of KANKUN® we have been guided by our company values: to be authentic, natural, generous, entrepreneurial and responsible.
As part of our sustainability journey we have meet a list of lovely people, suppliers, business owners as well as fantastic projects that are contributing to leave the world a little bit better. At the top of this list are Pamela and Alan, two Australians that immigrated to Mexico and accepted the challenge of becoming parents-directors of Misión Mexico, an orphanage that provides a loving, secure family home for children of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned in Tapachula Mexico.
Our commitment to Misión Mexico:
– Annual donation to enable Misión Mexico, to provide a loving, secure family home for the children part of the project. Our target is to contribute 10% of our profits each year.
– Engaging with key stakeholders of industry in which we operate, to spread the mission and values of Misión Mexico, with the aim to recruit new companies supporting this cause.
About Misión Mexico
Misión México is a children’s refuge in Tapachula, Chiapas (southern Mexico) that provides a loving, secure family home for children of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned. Since it was established in 2001, it has helped transform the lives of more than 250 children, giving them a much deserved second chance at life.
The refuge resembles a family home rather than an institution, and education is an opportunity provided to all the children, something many of them had not experienced before. With no financial support from the Mexican Government, the family relies on donations from around the world to support them.
