Everyone has a dream — something that they feel so strongly about that they would do almost anything to see it happen. We all stand at the foot of a bridge on the edge of an abyss, afraid to look down because we might fall and afraid to cross because we’re not sure what’s on the other side. Our hearts tell us to go for it, but our minds convince us that there are too many variables, too many unknowns. So we stay stagnant. We keep doing what’s comfortable and let our dreams wilt and die. Not today. That’s not the path for Sofi Seck and Rosebell Komugisha.
We’re both Africans, and our dream is to educate young women in Africa. We’re not tiptoeing across the bridge, we’re diving headfirst into the abyss, ready to see our dreams come to life. Failure is not an option.
Through Expedition Subsahara, we’re going to sell beautiful hand-crafted home decor and at the same time, raise enough money to build a school in Senegal. And with your help, we’re starting at an aggressive timeline of having our first school built in two years. The next two years of our lives will be absolutely dedicated to making this dream a reality. We hope you love the products and that you will share our dream with everyone you know so that we can build bridges, build communities and change lives.
