For Beautiful Earth sustainability is based on three separate but equally important aspects namely, economic prosperity, environmental quality and social equity. It is in terms of the latter, the social equity, that we support Cotlands.
We chose to support Cotlands because of their approach towards care. Not only do they have a national reach and impact, they go about their business in an open and honest way, by empowering children and their families to improve their quality of life.
We actively support Cotlands in two ways. Firstly, we make a monthly donation of Baby Barrier Cream as part of the home based- and residential care initiatives. Secondly, we make ad-hoc product donations throughout the year.
Cotlands is a non-profit organization caring for vulnerable children through a variety of residential and community-based programmes. These programmes include pediatrics hospices, places of safety, home based care projects, nutrition and early childhood development centres. The goal of all these projects is to provide quality care and support to at-risk children from birth to 12 years of age, as well as their families, through a holistic trans-disciplinary team approach in a specific geographical area. Services provided include psychosocial intervention, health care, education and establishing sustainable income generating projects for the children's families.
