I recently learned about an amazing company called Sseko Design. They are a sandal company based in Uganda where they make beautiful leather sandals with interchangeable fabric straps that can be styled in hundreds of ways. Sseko began as a way to generate income for high potential, talented young women to continue on to university. They also employ a full-time team of women from all walks of life, providing the opportunity for women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more equitable society.
Supporting Sseko Designs means providing employment and scholarship opportunities to women pursuing their dreams and overcoming poverty. In exchange for a 9-month working program, Sseko provides women in Uganda with a full college education. They also provide assistance by offering fair wage employment to over 50 women, affording grant programs in which Sseko Designs matches 100% of their savings for a University scholarship. In addition, they provide 100% health coverage/insurance and supply monthly preventative health and wellness training and services for full time staff, among countless other benefits.
Pretty darn amazing – and with the holidays quickly approaching, it’s also the perfect holiday gift idea or stocking stuffer! Fair trade fashion, for a wonderful cause… it’s definitely the heart warming gift that keeps on giving 🙂
