Providing economic opportunity for women in Under-Served Communitites
Doing the right thing is always in style! Great fashion sense is the added bonus — giving new meaning to retail therapy.
The mission of Songa Designs International is straight forward: Songa, which means “the path forward” in Swahili, exists to create jobs for skilled women in under-resourced countries so they can earn their way to economic independence. And this design company is doing just that — advancing the lives of the Rwandan women who craft this artisan collection— all the while creating stylish ecofriendly fashion and home décor. Generational weaving tradition meets socially conscious fashion forward style. Can we say, Win/ Win for all?
