>While browsing another blog (Wide Open Spaces), I ran across this awesome company working in Uganda called Sseko Designs. Sseko Designs employs Ugandan women who are transitioning between secondary school and the university. The company is designed to help these women pay their tuition for school…something that would be virtually impossible otherwise. The women work for about 9 months making these really cute sandals and then continue on with their education…and then a professional career. What an empowering message this company has!

I love companies that have a good purpose behind their product. Women’s education is definitely a wonderful thing!
