Basic as usual in my favorite jeans. I wear these pretty much every single day & I don’t even care how much my husband makes fun of me for it. What does he know anyway?! #sillyhusband 🤣🙌🏻 I shared some of my @ssekodesigns faves in stories today, including this gorgeous leather bag. And if you’re wondering, I can confirm it’s big enough for all the things AND plenty of snacks. Just FYI. 😉 http://liketk.it/2BVWd #email@example.com
The sun is a shinin’ and the snow is a meltin’! (finally!) Here’s another way to wear this super versatile @ssekodesigns tote. I keep my strap in the bottom of my purse so I can convert it to a crossbody or backpack at a moments notice. 🙌🏻 To shop this convertible tote and the other beautiful @ssekodesigns items, click the link in my bio. 💕
There’s nothing better thank a soft tencel or chambray shirt! I linked some good ones incase you need this must-have item in your wardrobe. Screenshot this pic and follow me in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. http://liketk.it/2AoyZ #firstname.lastname@example.org

Today is the final day of our #ssekodesigns birthday celebration, and we’re going back to where it all started 😍
10 years ago, a young woman with a big dream made a promise to 3 other dreamers under a mango tree in Uganda that if they would spend the summer making sandals, she would go back to the states and sell them, and they would have money to attend university in the fall. This year, we’ll have sent our 131st women to university, and we’re only getting started! Because of our growth last year, we were able to start expanding our impact beyond Uganda, and 3 young women in Ethiopia have the opportunity for a job and scholarship this year, and you’d better believe we’re not stopping there. @lizbohannon thank you for your #grit and #pluck to do something that scared you and not give up, and for your huge dreamer’s heart to share the opportunity to come alongside you and create an impact together ❤️ There are way more than 131 lives in Uganda that are forever changed because of you, I know I’m one.
So, enjoy our very first product ever, our classic ribbon sandals and ribbons, at half off today, and remember that this is way bigger than the sandals. And if you’d like a seat at the table with us, please come! There’s room, and no one belongs here more than you, let’s chat. There might even be cake 🎂 Happy Birthday @ssekodesigns 🥳
Day 7 of the Birthday Celebration and we are starting back with where it all began!
The Ribbon Sandal!
Sseko was started to enable high potential, talented young women in Uganda to continue on to university. These young women work for Sseko in the nine-month gap between secondary school and university, saving part of their income for university. They receive life skills training, are paired with professional mentors and get valuable formal work experience. At the end of their term, Sseko matches their savings 300%. Every woman who has graduated from Sseko has gone on to pursue higher education and is on her way to making our world a more beautiful place. In 2019, Sseko will enable our 131st woman to attend university!
Thank you for joining in on all the fun during our celebration! <3
Tomorrow is the LAST day of our 10th Birthday Bash!! And we are finishing it out with the pair of magic shoes that started it all! The Ribbon Sandals😍❤️ Tomorrow ONLY, for just 24hrs our ribbon sandals and ribbons will be 50% OFF!

It’s transformed the way I feel when I wear sseko items. It’s like I’m wearing joy, and dignity, and hope on my body, and it’s an indescribable feeling. Honestly, it makes it easy for me to save up and not buy things on impulse. A no brainer to spend more on one item that I’ll cherish, rather than on a greater quantity of items that won’t last as long and have no meaning.
This is an incredible opportunity to get items like this at such an amazing price! Don’t miss it!

It is with seriously great pleasure that I share some of my proudest work recently completed for the incredible impact-driven brand that is @ssekodesigns. Sseko makes beautiful, sustainable, handcrafted apparel, shoes and accessories. The young women that work for Sseko in the nine-month gap between secondary school and university save part of their income for university and Sseko matches their savings 300%. I was honored to be asked to travel with this company on their annual trip to visit their coworkers in Uganda this April. There we caught up with a few of the incredibly strong, intelligent, and charismatic women that have attended University despite financial and circumstantial odds and thanks in part to Sseko’s incredible program. Meet Beatrice, one heck of a woman with an incredible story. Swipe for full video 👉👉👉

Originally when I joined this community, I was in it for the discount. Because who doesn’t want amazing leather goods at a discounted price. But now that I’m 6 months in, I find it remarkable how amazing all these women are.
When I started back on 12/31/19 with the Every Girl campaign, I was prepared for a lot of my support system to second guess me. That is exactly what I got. But what was completely unexpected was that I would find a community of women who were bold, brave, encouraging, smart and driven. This bright, big, beautiful community taught me to preserve. Why? Because I want to.
Here’s to our CEO @lizbohannon. A woman who created an actual sisterhood of supporting, engaging, and fun women who are all in this together. If this is what you’ve accomplished in 10 years, I can’t wait to see what 10 more do. Thank you for allowing me on this journey. It has been an honor to find this global sisterhood.
PS: also thank you for the birthday sale. I have my eyes set on my dream bag and am patiently waiting out the 7 days of goodness coming my way

Did you know that 20% of small businesses fail in their first year and 70% fail in 10 years? Cheers to Sseko making it 10 years!

In 2009 Sseko Designs began when Liz took a bold and brave step promising Mary, Mercy and Rebecca, that she would send them to University! Together as Dreamers and Doers, they created the Sseko Sandal and Sseko began. -This year ( Year 10!) we'll have sent our 131st women to university. -Currently we employ 63 people in Uganda and have a fully Ugandan management team. -We provide 17 educational classes, fair wage, paid maternity leave, paid time off and health insurance.

❓What items are on your wishlist for the sale?
Meet Rachel, the doer to my dreamer... Raised by a supportive single mother in Lira, Rachel is thrilled to join us at Sseko this year and learn from the wise Veteran women working alongside her. If she isn’t at the workshop, she is probably deep into a novel or pouring out her heart through writing at the CLA House. If you ever meet Rachel in person, she will probably encourage you to be passionate about everything your hands find to do!
We are so excited for her to start pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Law and the impact she is going to make in the many lives around her.
Rachel brought my vision alive through Sseko's custom sandals design! I never loved a pair of sandals so much and to receive such a beautiful letter on top of it, I am overwhelmed!
This is the last month to design you own sandals. Don't wait! Create your dream sandal today our team in Uganda, will make your vision come to life! <3
