Hello pretty friends,

Happy Tuesday! Today I am so excited to tell you about Kidogo Kidogo, which means "little by little” in  Swahili. 

Kidogo Kidogo is a cell phone case company which purpose was created to help lift financial barriers preventing women in Tanzania from having access to life changing mobile-technology. Their business model is one-for-one, similar to Toms Shoes

In Tanzania, only 36% of women own mobile phones, and the number one reason preventing them from ownership is the initial cost of a mobile handset, since the mobile phones are prepaid. These phones are also much more to these women then just a way to communicate with family and friends, although they do enjoy this as well. 

A mobile phone is a flashlight, a watch, a calculator, a camera and a radio. In Tanzania mobile banking is extremely common, and a phone provides women a way to make secure banking transactions.

At Kidogo Kidogo, they sell iphone cases. But these cases do a lot more than just look good and protect your phone--they are putting life changing mobile technology into the hands of women across Tanzania. You see, when you buy a case, they buy a phone (or phone credits) to give to a woman who could not otherwise afford it.
This great organization has also partnered with an environmental NGO in Tanzania, Sea Sense. (A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the sea turtle cases will be distributed to Sea Sense who work closely with coastal communities in Tanzania to conserve and protect endangered marine species). 
The cases are priced at $30 each, and have been designed by esteemed Tanzanian-based artist, Sarah Markes, which feature some of Tanzania’s most iconic wildlife. (There are five iPhone 5/5s case designs and two iPhone 4/4s case designs). 

If you are in the market for new cell phone case or just want to help make a difference in another woman's life then check out Kidogo Kidogo and tell your friends! A little goes along away for these woman. Thank you for reading!

Until next time pretties!

With love from,  Kris
