Sseko Designs offers women the chance to help other women.

As women, I think (most of us) are born with a shoe gene. I've never had a problem thwarting the mass consumerism gene, but when it comes to shoes, I swear my brain starts releasing happy chemicals. It must be true. After all, there are women out there who have entire closets dedicated to their shoes (no, I'm not jealous, I swear...). So I was delighted to read about Sseko Designs, a cause related, women-helping-women kind of company, whose shoes have the power to change lives. This releases happy chemicals PLUS all over good feeling!

Here's the story: In Uganda, it's customary for students to have a 9 month hiatus during secondary school and university. This is done so that they may earn money for their education, but in this male dominated, war torn country, young woman have a hard time finding fair work. Sseko Designs aims to ease this dilemma by hiring recent women graduates who wish to further their education at a university. The goal is two-fold: to provide these women with a monthly income and to contribute to the overall economic development of Uganda.
