a note from our Founder
At Nuttery we believe what we do goes beyond natural foods. We create products with the intention of helping people take moments for themselves. Moments that let them recharge and take on the world with even more energy and passion.
We’re privileged to support the work of The Akanksha Foundation founded by Shaheen Mistri a non-profit organisation with a mission to impact the lives of children from low-income communities, enabling them to maximise their potential and change their lives, I can confidently say that what The Akanksha Foundation is building is truly unique and their positive impact will be felt for generations.
I’m excited for what the future holds as Nuttery builds and supports a relationship with The Akanksha Foundation and it’s an honour to contribute.
Why Akanksha Foundation
We were drawn to The Akanksha Foundation because their model is so unique. Their mission is to build the largest network of innovative schools that empowers children to maximise their potential and that influences systemic reform.
In the short term, Akanksha aims to re-deﬁne what is possible for children from low-income communities to achieve through its network of high-performing public-private partnership schools.
In the long term, they share their model and practices through partnerships with the government and other organizations. We aim to leverage our demonstrated impact to advocate for reforms with other like-minded organizations that will lead to an excellent education for all children.
“We’re so proud to be partnering with a such a contemporary and socially-conscious company like Nuttery. Their commitment to make social purpose an integral part of their overall business strategy makes so much sense today. It’s up to all of us to be the change we want to see in the world, and Nuttery lives and breathes this adage with the same passion and integrity they put into the outstanding products they create.”
– Shaheen Mistri , Founder of Akanksha Foundation
Our Current Initiative
We’re so excited to share our new partnership with Akanksha Foundation: for every purchase made at Nuttery.co, we will donate 3% of the product purchase value towards the education of unprivileged kids.
“At Nuttery we are extremely passionate about empowering society. We believe the best way to empower society and to bring change is to empower kids. We found the work being undertaken by The Akanksha Foundation deserves attention. We believe The Akanksha Foundation is a noble cause and our small contributions will maximise their potential.”
