Meet Cissy (sĭ-sĭ)

Skillful, Intelligent, Strong, Known, and Beautifully Created.

Cissy has been with Sseko since June of 2018 and hasn’t looked back since! Strong and hardworking, Cissy’s favorite role at  Sseko is cutting the leathers for our sandals. 

Cissy grew up in Kampala and was the second born in a family of eight. She is a mother of two boys and two girls (Sofia, 5 years old;  Janice, 2 years old; Ashraf, 12 years old; Shafic, 8 years old). When she is not at the workshop, she loves going home to love and care for her family. Her dream for the future  of Uganda is to see an increase in self-sustaining businesses that alleviate poverty in our society.
