When I think about my childhood I only have happy memories. However there are hundreds of children in Mexico that live on the street and do not have the same luck I had or many of you had.
Therefore one of the ethos of KANKUN® is to share our success with the unprivileged children in Mexico, my native place. The more sauces we sell, the more money we can share.
As a company we are still developing but we “think big” and we believe that the more we grow the greater the impact will be. Our motto is “YOU CAN WITH KANKUN®”.
We are delighted to announce that we have chosen Mission Mexico as the project at the heart of our social responsibility agenda. This is a very inspiring and fantastic project. It has become one of the many motivators for our team to sell more and more sauces.
Mission Mexico provides a loving, secure home for children of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned. The number of children in their care changes constantly, but on average they care for between 40 and 50 children on a permanent basis.
Deborah Grossman, Chairman Misión México (UK) stated, “We are delighted that Kankun Sauce has chosen Misión México to be their charity partner. It is wonderful to know that entrepreneurs like Astrid understand the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility and are keen to support the charity sector. Having a partner who shares our vision and appreciates our values are key and we certainly have those with Astrid and Kankun Sauce. Our children rely on the support of organisations like this, and individuals like Astrid to help them live a life full of love and hope, family and education. We are very excited about this new partnership and its growth here in the UK.”
Since it was established in 2001, Mission Mexico has helped transform the lives of more than 250 children, giving them a much deserved second chance at life. All are regaining a sense of confidence and self respect having found Mission Mexico.
