Shoes made in Africa, By Africans, Supporting Africans
Uwezo is an ambassador of African style and creativity that is changing people's perceptions of what Africa and its people are capable of accomplishing. Their first product (one of many to come!) are these fabulous hair on hide leather shoes for Men and Women. Each Uwezo purchase generates scholarship funds for orphaned and vulnerable African children with a premier education and the opportunity to help themselves thrive through global connections.
You can learn more about the organization Uwezo benefits, Empower African Children, and the amazing work they've been accomplishing. We've had the honor of knowing some of these scholarship students and to witness what a life changing opportunity the experience has been.
Also, The Spirit of Uganda will be touring the U.S. from January through May 2012. Check out the Tour Calendar to buy tickets- DON'T MISS IT!!!
