As much as I wish I could wear booties (only) during the summer, I have to get some use out of my sandals, right? Can never have too many pairs! Right now I’m totally into these great ones from Sseko Designs. Not only are they incredibly versatile (and comfy!) but I’m kinda in love with what the line is about. They hire women in Uganda so that they can earn money and put it directly towards their college educations. Did you know that women do 66 percent of the world’s work, but earn only ten percent of the world’s income… isn’t that crazy? Obviously I love these shoes, but what’s more, I love that supporting Sseko’s means that I’m helping women in east Africa make a living, go off to college, and pursue their dreams. If that doesn’t make you feel good, I’m not sure what would.
P.S. Like this bangle? It’s also from Sseko Designs! Check my Instagram later today for a fun giveaway I’ll be hosting (hint: you could win one!). I’ll also be sharing Biti’s—one of Sseko’s employees—story, about how one day she hopes to work for the Uganda Investment Authority, and help encourage business growth in her country.
