What We’re Reading, Watching, Listening, and Learning in January

As we enter a new year, there is always the temptation to leave the past behind us. Never before has that urge been so strong as with 2020, perhaps. But the past is never the past and in order to move forward, we have to acknowledge the value of reflection.  For many, last year was a wake-up call in terms of the war cry that rang out from the BIPOC community. We heard their stories, saw their pain, and acknowledged their fear, but we can’t just let that knowledge fade. As we set goals and direct our intention, we [...]

A Leadership Gathering Like No Other

Like everything else in 2020, leadership was a little different. Virtual hangouts was the name of the game. However, despite that being the case, we still felt on fire from all the amazing interactions. Our theme of last year’s gathering was Imagine + Ignite and we felt as invigorated as ever by the collaborations. Our top Fellows took some time out to share their favorite moments, key takeaways, and all the ways they are thriving and making a difference in an ever-changing environment.  If you’ve ever wondered if you could make it as a Sseko Fellow then A) we [...]

New Year’s Resolutions and the Brave Jewelry Collection

The new year is a time for fresh starts, goal setting, and intentions. It can be an uplifting exercise in exploring your hopes and dreams. Or it can be a rigorous repeat of “what-ifs” and “maybe somedays.”  For many of us, the practice of setting resolutions is a week filled with hopeful, renewed energy, followed by a steady decline away from those January 1st wishes. But doesn’t everyone desire to stick with whatever it is they are dreaming of? Don’t you long for a year where you see your resolutions all the way through to the end and look [...]

Last-Minute Gifts for Learners

If 2020 has done nothing else, it has awoken many people to the injustices in the modern world. Though Covid-19 has dominated much of the headlines, lingering, systemic racism has been brought to mainstream attention in new ways this year. While news coverage may die down, our resolve to promote equality and equity must not. As we round the corner towards 2021, it’s important we don’t forget everything we have learned thus far and that we constantly strive for better. If we’re going to improve and grow, we all must be open to learning, as anti-racism is a lifelong [...]

Making A Difference for Colombian Coffee Farmers

If you’re in a gift-giving rut, we have just the thing to break you out of it. The Together Coffee line has already brought a beautiful bold Ugandan coffee, as well as a delicate, light roast and rich and dark decaf roast from Ethiopia. Now, for a limited time, we’re offering a Colombian holiday roast with notes of butter toffee and orange that will compliment any seasonal gathering. (All Together Coffee is 100% natural. The tasting notes come from how the beans were grown and roasted -- just like fine wine!) Included with this specialty roast is a tumbler [...]

Holiday Jewelry, East Asia Partners, and Ending Exploitation

Our Sseko community is no stranger to the truly essential need for fair-trade operations in the fashion industry. Over the years, you’ve seen women in Uganda and other parts of the world receive education, earn fair wages, and work in safe environments as a direct result of your involvement with Sseko. This year, we’re pleased to be collaborating with another product partner seeking to liberate and elevate women in the most vulnerable of conditions. Worldwide, nearly 25 million people are trafficked for forced labor, of that, 4.8 million adults and children are trafficked specifically for sexual exploitation. An astounding [...]

What We’re Thankful For

This year has presented some especially unique challenges for everyone. As we’ve all fought to find our footing in an uncertain time, it’s easy to get lost in the struggles and forget the triumphs. We are thankful every year for our customers, our Sseko Fellows, and our teams working hard all over the world. But our gratitude has absolutely exploded this year as we watched everyone work harder than ever to adapt, grow, and thrive in this new landscape.  Individually, we have all had a chance to reflect on the things in our personal life too that have flourished [...]
