How It's Made, News

We’re Kickstarting a New Chapter!

Here at Sseko, we’re dreaming about leading the next frontier of transparent and customizable fashion.

Brave Spotlight, Sseko Fellows, Women of Sseko

Fellows Spotlight: Sarah Woodson (She earned herself a FREE trip to Uganda!)

There’s a community of women spread across the US that are changing the way women are empowered globally. By selling Sseko products and sharing the Sseko story, these women are earning an additional scholarship for the women on our team in Uganda! They’re called the Sseko Fellows, heard of them? One of our Sseko Fellows just hit Adventuress Status (that means she sold $10,000 worth of Sseko, in ONE month!) and she’s earned herself a trip to Uganda to meet the team!

Sarah Woodson is a 27 year old full-time Sseko Fellow (and newlywed!) who recently moved to St. Louis, Missouri with her hubby. Even before she was a Fellow, Sseko played a big role in her life- we’re talkin’ all her Bridesmaids were decked out in Ribbon Sandals y’all. She’s passionate about a range of social justice issues and has even spent time working for an anti-trafficking agency in the past!  This lady is busy killin’ it all day everyday, and we’re so happy she had some time to answer some of our questions. Read on to get to know Sarah and her work as a Sseko Fellow!

Life at Sseko, Uganda

A New Workshop in Uganda! (Dreams Coming True)

Every great journey begins with a small step.

That’s one of the tenants of the Sseko Manifesto for so many reasons! We truly believe that taking small steps is necessary to making any great journey possible. Since the beginning of Sseko, it’s been our dream to be in our own workshop in Kampala and for that workshop to be managed 100% by a Ugandan staff. We’ve been taking small steps to making this possible for years, and we’re so excited to share that (this year!) both of these dreams have come true!
