Indego Africa: Looking cute for a good cause.

Indego Africa: Looking cute for a good cause.

It's no secret, I love shopping. Most shopping trips start off with excitement and end up with feelings of guilt. "Did I really need another pair of ripped jeans?" "How many throw pillows is too many?" "Could this money go to better use? Like feeding a family for a week!" Those are usually the kind of questions that pop in my head the second I walk out the store... What if shopping was actually a good thing? What if, it not only made you happy but it also helped out someone in need? 

Well, Indego Africa, a nonprofit social entreprise & lifestyle brand, offers the cutest fashion and home accessories made by African women artisans. When purchasing on Indego Africa, you help support women in Rwanda through economic empowerment and education. 

100% of profits from sales, donations and grant support fund skills training programs in business management, technology, entrpreneurship, English and Kinyaranda literacy. Indego Africa currently employs over 800 women that support 3000+ children and other dependants.
