WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Our founder Mabel Suglo founded Dignified Wear to train and employ disabled and rural women artisans to handcraft durable and ethical fashionable wears from recycled materials from the inspiration she gained from her late grandma who had leprosy and with just a thumb, defied all forms of societal stigmatization and marginalization to cultivate food crops on a piece of land to feed her children and grandchildren proving the that, DISABILITY is not INABILITY. Her courage as a disable and single mother birthed Dignified Wear to economically empower marginalized artisans similar to her by connecting them to global markets and opportunities to maximize their career potentials.
Your purchase of any of our ethical and fashionable merchandise contributes $5 to the purchase of personal aids for the Ghanaian disabled. You can however donate any amount for their personal aids through DONATIONS or write us on firstname.lastname@example.org should you have tricycles, wheelchairs, hearing aids or sensor sticks for our disabled community.
To provide sustainable livelihoods for persons with disabilities and rural women artisans in Ghana.
To create decent employment for the physically challenged and rural women by training and employing them as an ethical and an eco-cultural producer in Africa.
