Blue Skies Foundation


The Blue Skies Foundation is a partnership between Blue Skies and two of its customers, Albert Heijn and Waitrose. The Foundation is a way for these companies to support the communities in which they trade. Officially launched in 2009, the Foundation has invested over 200,000 in development projects for communities involved in the supply of fresh-cut fruit.

Pens For Kids UK gave some pens, rulers and notepads to Blue Skies, who transported them to schools in Ghana and South Africa that are linked to the foundation.

Some of the photos of the items being distributed are shown to the right. The photos were sent to us by Simon Derrick of Blue Skies Foundation - many thanks!

The presentations were met with lots of excitements from both students and teachers. The headmasters of the various schools thanked the Foundation and its partners for this simple but significant gesture that will go a long way to help in the academic work of the schools. In all, six schools benefited including Juapong JHS, Abortia Primary School and Fotobi JHS.
