Sseko was founded by Liz Forkin Bohannon to enable high potential, talented young women in Uganda to continue on to university. These young women work for Sseko in the nine-month gap between secondary school and university, saving part of their income for university. By creating an environment of dignity, honor, and dedication, Sseko Designs provides the opportunity for women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more equitable society.
Not only does Sseko Designs create opportunity for women globally, it also creates opportunity within the local community through the Sseko Fellows program. As a Sseko Fellow you’ll become an integral part of creating educational opportunity for academically gifted women in Uganda.
