{thanks to DesignMom for showing me this awesome site}
Sseko Design (pronounced: say-co) is a company that employees young women in Uganda to assist in their saving for higher education as they make these gorgeous sandals (with interchangable straps for lots of color options). Their website explains that, "These women will not make sandals forever. They will go on to be doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers and teachers that will bring change and unification to a country divided and ravished by a 22 year-long war."
This is a beautiful thing.
PS - if I was getting married soon I'd do this, this is true natural beauty.

Katie how did you hear about Ssekos? My good friend from MU started this project and now lives in KC. Her wedding (the pic that you have) was awesome - all the girls were wearing Ssekos! You should totally get some!!!
