IMPACT REPORT

2017-2018



what we do


Sseko was started 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. They receive life skills training, are paired with professional mentors and get valuable formal work experience. At the end of their term, Sseko matches their savings 300%. Every woman who has graduated from Sseko has gone on to pursue higher education and is on her way to making our world a more beautiful place. In 2018, Sseko will enable our 107th woman to attend university!

In addition to our university-bound team, Sseko hires full time staff primarily from non-profit partners. These women come from all walks of life, and face a challenging job market. Sseko is bridging the gap. 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.

WE BRING OUR IMPACT FULL CIRCLE THROUGH THE SSEKO FELLOWS PROGRAM.


We enable Impact Entrepreneurs to join Sseko's story while creating their own social enterprise! Sseko Fellows are a community of women who are taking giant leaps and small steps towards using their talents to make an impact felt across the world. Through their Sseko businesses, they are able to create opportunity for themselves, their families AND their sisters in East Africa.
