I'd first heard of Sseko through Instagram, looking for philanthropic fashion brands. Sseko is a brand based in Uganda, Africa and currently employs artisan women with the aim of spreading opportunity for more women in Africa, which is currently a more dominantly patriarchal society. Understandably, this means women are less typically able to move on to higher education, college and university; however Sseko has already sent 47 women to university after 'graduating' from the workforce, in the 9 month gap between high school and university. 

Have you heard the quote, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"? Sseko adopts this, believing to end the cycle of poverty, the root causes need to be addressed. Working with a local non-profit that works with young women how have come out of the sex-slave industry, they aim to empower and educate women by giving them opportunities and experience that last a lifetime. 

"We believe that every woman has the capacity to end the cycle of poverty and that it can be done in a way that is fair, dignifying, honoring and life-giving."

Apart from being an incredibly philanthropic brand that is truly making change, they do great fashion! I am obsessed with their loafers.

Although I am in love with their loafers, they do so much more. In fact, their most popular item is their sandals, that's nifty because you can retie the ribbons in numerous ways for different looks. For fashion that makes a change, definitely consider your next haul from Sseko
