Today I'm partnering with Sseko Designs as a part of their "30 Days, 30 Ways" program.
Sseko Designs is an organization in Uganda that provides jobs for young women right out of high school who have a dream of attending college, but don't have the financial means to support their way through. Sseko Designs empowers these women to reach their goals with job opportunities by creating beautiful sandals, hand bags, and accessories.
And here's where you come in! You have the opportunity to be a part of something big. Something life changing. By purchasing something from Sseko Designs, you are contributing to the education of the bright, young women of Uganda. Empowering these women to run after their dreams brings hope a brighter future, a step towards ending poverty, and encourages fair trade.
I love what Sseko has to say about their mission and purpose behind their designs:
We believe in the power of responsible consumerism. Instead of competing for limited donor dollars, we hope consumers think about the story behind their "stuff." If we considered the impact that each product we consume has on the lives of those who produced that product and chose to see consumerism as a force and opportunity for positive social change, we believe the world would be filled with beautiful products with even more beautiful stories."
Check out the sandals I'm styling here. Along with their hand bag collection andaccessories.
