We are the first retail store to carry Seeds to Sew International products. We are so happy to be partnering with the folks of this organization. The Stateside staff and founders are some of the most motivated and committed folks I know. They are incredibly devoted to the young girls and women they support in Kenya who make the products we sell in our shop. The products do very well in our shop and we are proud to be representing them in direct trade. Three cheers for the folks, far and wide, of Seeds to Sew International!!!

I recently began to volunteer for the organization, and have been having an incredible experience. It is clear through working with the members that they pour all of their passion into what they do, and get so much joy from bettering the lives of other people! I hope Seeds to Sew grows and becomes much more widely known - definitely check them out (they have awesome jewelry)!

A great outfit with a unique idea about how to benefit the people of Kenya, with a very efficient set up. It is amazing how much they have been able to achieve, not just materially but also in terms of psychologically uplifting and encouraging the the people in the villages, especially the women. Great work, keep it up!!

I have worked with Seeds to Sew to launch a project in Nyanchonori. They have been very kind and have helped us to get to the step we need in order to change the world. They have continuously shown us support and have gotten the word out about our fundraising needs. They have exceeded all expectations and are great to work with.

Working for Seeds to Sew in Kenya was a phenomenal experience. This foundation not only works diligently to provide assistance to disadvantaged women and girls, but also provides education and opportunities for a better, more empowered life. I learned so much while working for this creative organization, and I hope that I have the opportunity to do so again in the future.

Seeds to Sew is an incredible organization working to improve the lives of women and girls in Kenya. Their mission is simple: help women find economic independence by teaching them sewing skills that they can use to earn their own income, resulting in an empowered population of women dedicating to educating their daughters. Girls use traditional Maasai tradition to make beaded bracelets that are sold in the states, from which all the proceeds go towards paying for the girls school fees. If you want to make a direct impact on peoples lives through small monetary donations that make great gifts for anyone, contribute to Seeds to Sew International.
