I first heard about these fabulous hand-crafted sandals last year... ever since I have been totally smitten... not only for their simplicity but the story behind each sandal... that is correct each sandal has it's individual story. Sseko Designs is located in Uganda. It was created in hopes of helping young women of Uganda to continue their education which will assist them in the effort of finding a job in a male dominated society after graduating from university. Sseko Designs has created a program for the young women to earn and save enough money to continue on their education. The goal of Sseko Designs is to provide university tuition to promising young women through a sustainable monthly income, while also contributing to the overall economic development in Uganda - now if that isn't reason enough to shop... then I don't know what is!
