sseko sandals (1)

i was thrilled when sseko designs approached me about participating in their 30 says, 30 days to educate women in africa campaign. sseko is a humanitarian brand that makes beautiful sandals, clutches and totes in uganda. their sandals start with a standard base, then come with a huge selection of different straps and patterns which can all be tied in hundreds of ways (pictured above are the sseko sandals with the clochette chiffon straps in the classic tie).

their unique sandal makes them pretty special, but what makes them even more special is their mission and dedication to educationsseko hires recent secondary school graduates in uganda for a nine month period to live and work together, while earning money that will go directly towards their university education. without an opportunity like this, most of these women would never have the chance to earn the income they do to attend university. the best news is, these women will not make sandals forever. they will go on to be doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers and teachers that will bring change and unification to a country divided and ravished by a 22 year-long war.

i think that’s pretty amazingsseko has also been generous enough to offer ghtr readers a special discount, just enter code “Sseko30x30” during checkout for 30% off your purchase. thanks, sseko!

i’ve been hearing some pretty incredible things about skillshare lately. have you heard of it? in a nutshell, it’s a global community where you can learn real-world skills from some pretty incredible teachers. the classes are incredibly affordable (some are even free!), and can be viewed on your own schedule since they provide lifetime access to the course content. they specialize in everything from culinary arts to design, photography to fashion and style. pretty awesome, right?
