Sseko designs is a remarkable company.
I don't think I could give it enough justice, so I recommend you read THE STORY on your own.
But, basically, Sseko designs gives women in Uganda to work and earn money for college during a gap between secondary school and university.
Here is a quote from the website:
"Sseko Designs is a not-just-for-profit enterprise that recognizes the power of business and responsible consumerism to support sustainable economic development, which in turn affects a country's educational, justice, and health care systems. The goal of Sseko Designs is two-fold: provide university tuition for these promising young women through a sustainable monthly income, while also contributing to the overall economic development of Uganda."
The mission of the organization is amazing, as are the sandals themselves.
The sandals are made so that, once you have the "base," you can exchange for different ties. The best part is that there are tons of ways the sandals can be tied!
I love the Starboard ties!
And my second favorite is the Tamzen tie.
A reader emailed me about the website and mentioned this really cool initiative Sseko designs is doing called Sseko Sole Sisters.
Watch the video, it's awesome!
What do you think? Will you and your sorority be participating?
