testimonials

image “The Sseko Fellows program was so immensely attractive to me because it was the most fashion forward way for me to be an education nerd! I LOVE being able to use my background doing research for a non-profit anti-trafficking organization and apply it to a business that is having a major impact in individual women as well as the culture of Kampala.”

-Kathryn, Fellow, PA




image “Being a Sseko Fellow and getting to cheer on the girls at the Sseko workshop in Uganda as they pursue their dreams has helped me fill a void of finally being able to pursue my dreams. I'm passionate about building relationships and encouraging others to see their dreams become a reality. Being able to cheer on Sharon this year as she seeks her dreams becoming a reality of studying medicine or nursing at university, has brought new joy to my life. It's amazing to stand beside a company who not only wants a better world, but who is actually making that happen."

-Sarah, Fellow, MO




image​"As if the ribbon sandals weren't enough to steal my passion for fashion, the fact that I have my own sole sister to make her dreams come true is why I'll be a forever fellow! Walking with Sseko on my path to pave the road for my sole sister to run down hers."

-Danielle, Fellow, IN​

By sharing the Sseko story with your community and selling Sseko products through trunk shows as well as online, you’ll become an integral part of making dreams come true for women in Uganda. From the in’s and out’s of social entrepreneurship, to running an actual small business, to marketing and product development, as a Sseko Fellow you’ll have the opportunity to learn it all. Oh! And you’ll also make money, earn free and discounted products and have a chance to participate in things like trips to Uganda and annual Sseko Fellow gatherings.

Trunk shows provide a unique way for women to learn about the Sseko story and experience Sseko products in person! Your Hostess will invite her crew over for a time of fun and fashion.

Your Fellow is the Sseko expert!

When it comes to booking trunk shows, we provide the necessary training, tools and materials to help you dive right in! We recommend starting with women in your closest social circles—those who really resonate with Sseko’s mission, and are pumped to earn up to 25% Sseko credit to get herself some goodies!

Your Hostess simply invites her friends and opens up her home, while you as the Fellow bring the products in your Starter Kit in addition to order forms and catalogs. Guests at the Trunk Show get the opportunity to shop Sseko directly through you which helps enable your Sole Sister to earn an additional scholarship towards University, your Hostess earns some free Sseko swag, and you earn a commission on sales. We like to call that a #winning trifecta!

If you don’t know how to bring that inspiration in the context of sales yet, that’s no problem. We have a training program and a team that will help you get there!

With every show comes the potential to grow your business by meeting potential Hostesses, Fellows and customers!
The Sseko Fellows Program empowers you through a strong one-to-one connection to a woman on our team in Uganda who’s working towards her own goals and dreams. While you make a difference in your community by sharing your passion and talents, she’s making a difference in her community an ocean away.

Not only will you be showing off beautiful products, but you’ll also be sharing the beautiful stories behind them. As a Sseko Fellow, you’re not just selling things, you’re part of a movement that’s creating lasting social and economic impact in the U.S. and East Africa.
