Testimonials

“My experience as a Sseko Fellow has shaped me into a better person. Through the sisterhood at home and in Uganda, I have learned not to be afraid of my own voice but to use it to empower and help others!”

Jasmin, Sseko Fellow

“As a Sseko Fellow, I am consistently challenged to see the world differently, dream bigger for myself, my family, and my sisters across the globe, and live life fully present. The last two years were not easy, but I have had extraordinary adventures, created forever friendships, and I have been changed. I am here to stay, and I cannot wait to see where the next 10 years will take me!”

Kara, Sseko Fellow

“The women that are the Sseko Fellows are bright, bold and gritty – they love and give wholeheartedly. God has truly answered my prayer with this mission, and these sisters! Thankful, Grateful, Blessed!”

Jeanene, Sseko Fellow

You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers!

What does it mean to be a Sseko Fellow?2019-01-17T17:47:54+00:00

As a Sseko Fellow, you become a representative of Sseko in your community. 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 creating educational opportunity for academically gifted women in Uganda. From the in’s and out’s of impact 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.

What is a trunk show?2018-11-13T22:53:06+00:00

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. As the Sseko Fellow, you’ll represent Sseko at the trunk show by sharing the Sseko story, connecting guests to your Sseko Sister in Uganda and by walking them through Sseko products. Your Fellow is the Sseko expert!

How do I book a trunk show as a Sseko Fellow?2019-01-22T17:45:29+00:00
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 your closest social circles—those who really resonate with Sseko’s mission, and are pumped to earn Sseko Credit and 50% off product to get herself some goodies!
Your Hostess simply invites some friends and puts out some snacks, 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 contributes to our impact around the world while your Hostess earns some free Sseko swag, and you earn a commission on sales. We like to call that a #winning trifecta!
How much can I earn?2019-01-22T17:54:03+00:00

As a Sseko Fellow, you’ll earn up to 30% commission on personal sales, up to 11% on your team’s commissionable volume, and up to 50% off of Sseko product. See our full income disclosure here!

DO I HAVE TO HAVE SALES EXPERIENCE TO BE A SSEKO FELLOW?2018-11-14T19:26:15+00:00

Certainly not! With the Fellows program, we strive to create opportunities for women to step out of their comfort zone, connect, learn and reach their fullest potential. We know you have a story that’s unlike anyone else’s, and that will bring an inspiration to our product that no one else can bring! 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!

HOW MANY HOURS DO I NEED TO PUT IN?2018-11-14T19:40:56+00:00

The great thing about the Fellows Program is it’s flexible! Whether you want to spend 5 hours a week, or 8 hours every day as a full-time gig, it’s up to you! We’ve put together this speedy little quiz to help you determine how many hours you personally might invest into being a Fellow!

IF I LIVE OUTSIDE THE US, CAN I BE A SSEKO FELLOW?2018-11-14T19:28:01+00:00

Currently, our Fellows Program is only available to those residing in the U.S. We hope that someday we’ll be able to roll out the program global scale! If you’d like to be first on our list when we expand internationally, feel free to apply!

IS THERE A MINIMUM I NEED TO SELL TO REMAIN A SSEKO FELLOW?2019-01-22T17:54:47+00:00

To remain active, we look at the Fellows last three months of activity. If you hit $500 in personal volume in the last three months of being a Fellow, you remain active! If you sell less than $500 in personal volume in the last three months, you go inactive. There are no repercussions for going inactive, it’s just a warning bell for us to get in touch with you and get active again! After six months of less than $500 in personal volume, a Fellow retires. There are no fees or hidden agendas when you retire – sometimes it’s just not the right season for you, and we totally get it!

HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO INVEST?2019-11-01T15:50:37+00:00

When you join the Fellows program, you’ll purchase your Starter Kit which will get you started with Sseko product! The Sseko Legacy Kit, $149.99, takes all the stress out of making a decision on which kit to purchase and instead creates a seamless process to become a Fellow. We have curated our best-selling items into a new Legacy Kit to provide exactly what you need to get your business started successfully! Fellows primarily use the items in their Starter Kit to show the product to customers and then submit orders online. These orders are directly shipped to the customer. Fellows are also welcome and able to purchase product at discounts up to 50% off to sell directly to the customer from their own stock. This additional option of purchasing at wholesale is not required.

CAN I BUILD A TEAM OF MY OWN?2018-11-14T19:30:35+00:00

Yes! There is an opportunity to become a Mentor Fellow and lead other women on a team (as well as earn some extra income!). This is an additional role for the Sseko Fellow who wants to help lead other women in story, sales, and style. Our mentors are an integral part of why we have an amazing culture in the Sseko Fellows Program!

WHAT MAKES THE FELLOWS PROGRAM DIFFERENT?2018-11-14T19:31:20+00:00

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.
