  • 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 #liketkit @liketoknow.it

  • Doesn't everyone throw frisbees for their dog while sitting in a tree?! You can only just barely see the charms I've added to my Sseko necklace here, but I want to talk about them. Because they're important.
*deep breath*
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
There's a green glass one. It's called "clarity." I chose this one because the past three years have been a time of clarity for me. That clarity has brought peace to questions that have haunted me most of my life, but also great suffering because I haven't been able yet to fully accept the answer to those questions: I have Asperger's. True, it's a self-diagnosis, and the label isn't definitive of who I am (<– or at least I'm told this is what I need to believe). But learning about these traits and how they manifest in different individuals has given me great insight, great clarity into how my brain works. It has explained and helped me work through so many hangups. And in spite of how I went careening into a downward spiral starting in 2016 because of this new awareness that I want to reject but can't, I have finally been getting to know myself for who I am. I get to learn about my opinions and preferences, for me. I'm no longer wasting energy trying to assimilate to normal people (the correct term is "neurotypical"). This brings me to the next charm on my necklace: "vibrance." There is a new vibrance in my life from learning to gain confidence in who I am. I can't change the way I've been created, but I can begin to believe that I'm "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139), and I can begin to enjoy the various strengths that come along with Asperger's. I still have a long way to go. A long, long way. But this year seems like the year God is saying, "enough." Healing is beginning.

  • Friends! I know so many of you have asked about these sandals that send women to college. And I KNOW when shopping ethically, prices are higher for a reason- because you are paying the TRUE COST of what it takes to make that that item at fair wages and benefits provided to the garment workers. IF that has hindered you from checking out these beautiful sandals with even more beautiful stories behind them, today is your day.
.
Sseko is blowing out the candles, and is blowing it all out on the last day of the Birthday Bash with half off the sandal (and ribbons) that started it all. (Link in bio).
.
Thank you so much for your support of this beautiful mission and of my own dreams of earning my way to Uganda #becauseofsseko. Please reach out if you have any questions about sizing/color/leather/ribbons- this s-a-l-e only lasts through midnight PST, and then the price will return to the original fair-trade-federation verified value. Thank you for empowering women in East Africa with your purchase. (Swipe for a pic of the three original Sseko grads who have graduated and blessed so many others because of the degree they were able to obtain because of Sseko).

  • 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

  • This all started with a ribbon sandal. So it's only fitting that for the last day of our 10th birthday celebration sale we'd be highlighting that very sandal. Half off all ribbon sandals and ribbons Wednesday 7/17 only. I love these sandals so much. Lots of different bases and ribbons and endless possible combinations! They are so comfy, you can do anything in them, and they'll last for years. Make sure you own the item that started it all 10 years ago! SO SPECIAL! 🥰 Link in bio! 😘 #ssekoturns10 #ssekodesigns #ssekosandals #ssekobanana #ethicalfashion #ellensburg #uganda #buybetter

  • Joe Bruin is wishing Sseko and me a Happy Birthday!! I would not have been able to go to UCLA without a scholarship.  It made ALL the difference. 
I'm celebrating by sharing the story of a
woman who wanted to make a difference. 10 years ago Liz Forkin Bohannon wanted to make an impact in Uganda, and she saw that there was a 9 month gap between the time a young woman graduated college preparatory school and the start of university. During that 9 months, they are supposed to find work and earn enough money for school. More often than not, they returned to their villages and were expected to marry and start a family, or were unable to find jobs that would pay them enough.  Sseko bridges that gap.  After a 9 month work study program with Sseko, young women learn to make these products, earning a fair market wage and 50% of their earnings are matched 300% to provide them their University scholarship.  10 years later 131 women will have gone onto university and toward their goals. 
Sseko is celebrating by giving us 40% off some amazing bags & creating more full time jobs and more university scholarships for bright and bold women in Uganda & Ethiopia.

  • Joe Bruin is wishing Sseko and me a Happy Birthday!! I would not have been able to go to UCLA without a scholarship. It made ALL the difference.
    I'm celebrating by sharing the story of a
    woman who wanted to make a difference. 10 years ago Liz Forkin Bohannon wanted to make an impact in Uganda, and she saw that there was a 9 month gap between the time a young woman graduated college preparatory school and the start of university. During that 9 months, they are supposed to find work and earn enough money for school. More often than not, they returned to their villages and were expected to marry and start a family, or were unable to find jobs that would pay them enough. Sseko bridges that gap. After a 9 month work study program with Sseko, young women learn to make these products, earning a fair market wage and 50% of their earnings are matched 300% to provide them their University scholarship. 10 years later 131 women will have gone onto university and toward their goals.
    Sseko is celebrating by giving us 40% off some amazing bags & creating more full time jobs and more university scholarships for bright and bold women in Uganda & Ethiopia.
