Thanks to Sseko’s latest endeavor, you can now design the sandal of your dreams, while helping dreams come true for a woman in East Africa.
Sseko is an ethical fashion brand based in Uganda that employs bright & brave young women for 9 months when they graduate from high school, allowing them to earn an income to attend university. To date, they’ve sent 72 women to college.
Sseko sandals have been featured on Shark Tank, Good Morning America, and on the feet of celebrities like Sophia Bush.
Now, Sseko is dreaming of the next frontier in ethical fashion: completely customizable and on-demand sandals that connect producer to consumer like never before. As you design your dream sandal from the highest quality materials, you’ll get connected to the women in Uganda who will be handcrafting your creation. You’ll receive updates from their team about the process of crafting your one of a kind sandal. In addition to learning about how your sandals are being made, you’ll learn about the hopes and dreams of the women in Uganda who are making them.
When you design your own sandals with Sseko, you get a pair of beautiful, custom-made sandals that you’ll wear season after season. Meanwhile, she gets the opportunity to pursue her dreams, go to college and become a leader in her community and our world.
Moving to on-demand manufacturing is no small feat though, and that’s where Sseko needs YOUR help! Sseko is launching this project on Kickstarter to get the funding they need to make this project a reality.
By supporting Sseko right now on Kickstarter and sharing their campaign with your community, you’ll become a part of the Sseko story and help provide them with the resources to make this huge shift into custom-manufacturing possible. On top of that, you’ll be helping them to grow their impact in Uganda. (For every $25k they raise, they’re able to bring two full-time women onto the team!)
