Women in patriarchal societies have fewer opportunities and less chance of reaching higher education and employment then their male counterparts. Sseko looks to change this by supporting East African women's higher education through employment and the sale of their footwear, bags and accessories.
Through providing dignified and fairly paid jobs to the women that make the products, Sseko are ensuring that women are able to break the cycle of poverty and avoid desperation into jobs such as prostitution. They have also founded a sustainable giving organisation by donating some of the proceeds from their sales to women who want to enter higher education but would otherwise not be economically able.
By purchasing Sseko products you are helping to empower and enable the women of Uganda through education but also ensuring an income for the women of Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda that make the products.
