Women of Sseko

Meet Some of Our Top Hostesses in 2018

Every Sseko Hostess who gathers her friends for an evening of meaningful shopping (and great style!) makes her own unique impact. These four women went above and beyond, hosting some of our most impactful Trunk Shows of 2018. Read on to meet a few of our Hostess Hall of Famers! 


What made you want to host with your Sseko Fellow?

It’s no surprise that I instantly fell in love with this company, the products, and the mission! I knew right away that I HAD to share Sseko with my friends & family! Predictably, they loved it just as much as I did!

What was your favorite part about your role as a Sseko Hostess?

Because Sseko is small but growing, I loved having the opportunity to share this budding company with the closest people in my life who hadn’t heard of it before! It was so fun to watch their excitement, the same excitement I had when I was discovering these quality handmade products and the difference Sseko is making in women’s lives for the first time, too!

What’s one tip you would give to another Hostess who wants to hit the Hall of Fame?

Share, share, share! Comment, comment, comment! Post, post, post! Be involved in every facet of YOUR party! Your friends trust you and your opinion the most!


What made you want to host with your Sseko Fellow?

I wanted to host with Beth because I saw how much she loved the mission. Once I found out more it was a no-brainer! People needed to know about these products and the story of Sseko!

What was your favorite part about your role as a Sseko Hostess?

My favorite part was educating my friends about the work Sseko is doing. Shopping for a good cause always means so much more!

What’s one tip you would give to another Hostess who wants to hit the Hall of Fame?

My best tip would be to collaborate with your Fellow and participate! I worked side by side with Beth to be active in my Social, engage my friends, and learn what their needs were and which Sseko product would fit them best. You don’t have to feel like you’re just trying to sell something to them, you’re serving them!


What made you want to host with your Sseko Fellow?

I was invited to a friend’s party last minute and I normally don’t pay attention to a direct sales pitch, but this one caught me off guard because it wasn’t a pitch at all! The Fellow hosting (Kara Jenkins) spoke so passionately about Uganda and Sseko’s mission at the beginning of the video and when she finally went to the products, I was already hooked! I hosted a party with her shortly after that to continue to spread the love, joy, and hope that Sseko made me feel when I attended my first party.

What was your favorite part about your role as a Sseko Hostess?

Learning the backstory was my favorite part! Kara sent me information about Sseko’s business plan structure, how the women in Uganda are paid, what’s the set up of the warehouse, etc. Learning the infrastructure of Sseko has helped me to appreciate the handmade products even more.

What’s one tip you would give to another Hostess who wants to hit the Hall of Fame?

Remember – it’s not about you! Don’t go into hosting with the mindset of wanting to reach the Hall of Fame or looking for that Sseko credit when the party is done. If you host for the right reasons, share your excitement and passion for this company, and let the Fellow do her job, it’ll all work out! Invite your friends and family that you know share these same values and encourage them to be a part of Sseko’s story!


What made you want to host with your Sseko Fellow?

I wanted to host a Sseko show for several reasons. I love the all the products. They are all amazing and one way to get more products was to host a show. I received so many great things that I would not have been able to purchase just by hosting a show. Also I wanted to help my cousin, Lynne Clemmons, get started with her new Sseko journey. She loves the mission and products herself so much that I wanted to help her get a great start in her new adventure! She supports me in everything I do and now this was my chance to help her. Lastly and most importantly, I LOVE the mission of Sseko!

What was your favorite part about your role as a Sseko Hostess?

My favorite part about being a hostess was being able to introduce Sseko to others that had never heard of this company. I was able to share some of my favorite products with them and invite them to learn more about the company and mission. Of course, I also loved seeing everything Sseko had to offer and share it with others. I can not forget the amazing benefits I received hosting a show. I received so many products that I love just by simply hosting a show.

What’s one tip you would give to another Hostess who wants to hit the Hall of Fame?

Stay involved with the show and just share the mission and company with others. The mission and products sell themselves!!!
