During a trip to Uganda after graduating college in 2008 Ms. Bohannan came across the Cornerstone Leadership Academy; a two-year college prep academy that only accepts the top twenty five women in the entire country. Elizabeth offered her journalism and public relations expertise to this organization but discovered another problem that befell its students. In Uganda there is a nine-month gap between the completion of ones secondary education and university attendance. Most students are expected to earn and save money during this period of time to finance their higher education, so Sseko Designs was started by Bohannan to solve this problem. Pictured below are a couple of the styles made by the academy’s students:
All of these sandals are very versatile and can be tied in different ways, making each sandal very unique. Clients can create their own Sseko sandal by selecting their own strap and custom color. Please go to www.ssekodesigns.com to place your order and support a worthy cause.
