Mawu Lolo | God is Great

In Ghana 40% of the population lives on less than $1 per day. That is less than $365 in 1 year. Or less than $3650 in a whole decade. 

It is Mawu Lolo's mission to play a part in ending the cycle of poverty in Ghana. How are they doing that you might ask?

For the past 15 years Globeserve has joined forces to establish two schools there. One of the schools is a preparatory school that educates 500+ kids. The other is a vocational school that has been focused on sewing and dressmaking for unwed mothers who are at risk of turning to prostitution for work. (After graduating the program, they get a sewing machine to take home to continue their practice.)

 A recent expansion of this program is sandal making through Mawu Lolo! The women in this program are given a chance to learn a skill that has the potential to change the path of their lives and offer them and their villages stability. Mawu Lolo hopes that after the artisans graduate the program they can continue their trade in their villages and take steps toward ending the cycle of poverty by having a means to provide for themselves and their families.

And y'all, these sandals are amazing. The Elinam is the two strap cork bed shoe. This one is unisex. It is a classic style and the pop of color is perfect for the spring and summer!

The Suborsubor has three straps over the front of the foot and a leather strap for support around the ankle. I love how different this style is, and the purple pink and white color is my absolute FAV. These shoes have done me well on this little spring break vacation!!
