“A shoe has so much more to offer than to walk.” – Christian Louboutin
Sseko Designs is proof of that, because every sandal that is made for Sseko by the young women of Uganda not only has a story, but a creator and ultimately, a sole sister.
Through a Kickstarter campaign last year, Sseko Designs introduced the “design your dream sandal.” You can pick the style, material, size, and color, as well as details like hand-beaded accents and monogramming.
Sseko Designs is a fashion brand based in Uganda. Through the sale of beautiful handbags, accessories and leather sandals, we create opportunity and community for women globally.
We believe that every woman has a dream. When she has the opportunity to pursue those dreams, we are collectively walking towards a brighter, more just and beautiful world.
There are a several ways to tie your Sseko sandals.
Because you can design your own sandals, styling them is simple and can make any outfit so chic. You can literally invest in one pair of Sseko sandals and several different ribbons and/or detailed pieces, like the hand-beaded accents, and never have the same style sandal for a month of Sundays.
Chicago P.D. and former One Tree Hill star, Sophia Bush, has even designed a pair of sandals for Sseko Designs – the silver crossover slide. She even traveled to Uganda to see first-hand the work that Sseko Designs was doing with the young women of that country.
These crossover slides are perfect for summer!
Sseko began as a way to generate income for high potential, talented young women in Uganda to continue on to university. And it has worked! Every woman who has graduated from Sseko is currently pursuing her college degree or has graduated from university and is on her way to making our world a more beautiful place. To date, they have enabled more than 85 women to attend university! Amazing, am I right?
In addition to their university-bound team, Sseko also employs women from all walks of life. By creating an environment of dignity, honor and dedication, Sseko Designs provides the opportunity for women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more equitable society.
“When you wear Sseko, you’re not only sporting beautiful, stylish items that you’ll have for years to come, but you’re giving a woman the opportunity to pursue her dreams and become leader in her community and our world.”
Just remember that each order over $100 receives FREE SHIPPING and also earns the women badges towards bonus scholarships ON TOP of what they already receive from Sskeo. Click this link to start making a change in the lives of these beautiful young women in Uganda and East Africa.
