Just a few short years ago, Sseko was headquartered under a mango tree in rural Uganda. We were four young women, making sandals and dreaming about what the future held. Weâ€™re now a family of over 50 women from all walks of life. Together, we make beautiful things. We laugh and we love and we dance and we learn. And through the making and selling of beautiful products, incredibly bright, passionate young women are able to continue their educations and chase their dreams. We love to dream about the futures of these women--about the change they will bring and the love they will give. But we love dreaming about the here, as well-- about building a community of people who have the courage and audacity to dream about and work towards a more beautiful world. You see, every sandal has a story.
(and t he sseko te am)
ill not make sandals forever. They will go on to become doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers, and teachers who will bring change to their country and our world. Sseko Designs uses fashion to provide employment and scholarship opportunities to women pursuing their dreams and overcoming poverty. To date, weâ€™ve enabled 47 women to continue on to University. We provide employment (along with access to a comprehensive social impact program) to our team of 50 women in Uganda. And we do it all through a financially self-sustaining model.
