KYOS believes a sustainable world can only be realized when people, governments and also companies take responsibility and invest in those places where it is most needed.
At KYOS, a substantial part of the annual profit is used to support the following non-governmental organizations.
KYOS made a long term commitment to support Stichting Heifer in their Uganda project.
Heifer supports local communities in development countries by giving animals and training, allowing people to escape from poverty. Animals are a source for healthy food, for instance by giving eggs and milk.This is especially important for the youngest members of families.
The part which is not consumed by the family, can be sold on the market.
KYOS sponsors the work of Stichting Twiga.
For example, it has helped to realize the new ‘lodge’ in Mto wa Mbu in Tanzania. The lodge opened in the beginning of 2011 and is used for the children education project. It also houses the volunteers who are mainly active in providing extra tuition to the children (English, math, presentation and other subjects).
In addition to sponsoring the educational activities and the lodge construction itself, KYOS has helped to make the lodge fully self-supporting in terms of electricity supply: a flexible system of solar devices now supplies all the power needed.
KYOS is member of the business ambassadors program of Oxfam Novib.
Angelique van Wijk, loyalty manager Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs Network: “Oxfam Novib likes to work with businesses to defeat poverty and strive for equal opportunities for all. To be able to provide for yourself, where ever you are, is essential for building an independent existence. We highly appreciate Kyos for being a member of the network and making this possible.”
