helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

 

sponsored post

I am excited to host another wonderful giveaway this week! I definitely wanted to help get the word out about this wonderful company. This week’s giveaway is sponsored by Sseko Designs.

Sseko Designs is a company that partners with a school in Kampala, Uganda to employ recent high school graduates to make beautiful sandals as a way to earn money to continue on to University. They employ bright young women who would otherwise not have the opportunity to continue their education. Sseko is passionate about educating and empowering women, specifically in developing countries.

According to their website, the Ugandan school system is designed with a nine month gap between secondary school and university. These nine months are intended to allow time for students to earn money for tuition before continuing on to university. However, in an impoverished and male dominated society, many of these young women struggle to find fair work during this time. 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.

You can read more about the story of Sseko here.

Now on to the sandals- did I mention they are fabulous? They are great for beach or garden weddings and you can choose from a variety of straps.

One of the best parts of these sandals is that the straps are interchangeable, so you can have many different looks without spending tons of money. Super adorable, no?

Sseko Designs has offered to give away One Pair of these gorgeous sandals with One Patterned pair and One Solid pair of straps! Very exciting!

To enter:

Go to Sseko Designs and choose your favorite pattern/color. Come back here and tell us what that favorite is in the form of a comment below.
