ABLE Shoes- Summer Sale
One of my very favorite fair trade companies is ABLE, and while all their products are amazing, their shoes are what keep me coming back for more. First, here is some background information on the company:
ABLE describes their company as “a lifestyle brand focused on ending generational poverty by women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances.” ABLE works locally and globally in the communities they wish to impact, creating jobs in hopes to end the dependency on charity. I fell in love with the company when I learned how it was started. Founder Barrett Ward lived abroad in Ethiopia and saw firsthand the extreme level of poverty people are living in. Many women resort to prostitution as a means to support themselves and even their families.
I also lived abroad in Ethiopia for six months and can attest that prostitution is not uncommon. I never saw it in the village I lived in, but when I went into the city I saw it in almost every restaurant or bar I went to. In fact the capital city, Addis Ababa, is rumored to be home to one of the largest collection of brothels in Africa. ABLE’s goal is to give these women an alternative by providing women with dignified job opportunities that would empower them out of prostitution. ABLE has grown and now works with disadvantaged women in Ethiopia, Peru, Mexico, and the United States.
Now that you hopefully love ABLE’s mission as much as I do, it’s time to fall in love with their shoes! Many of which are currently on sale. Here are a few of my favorites! My picks are all handmade in Peru and named after the female artisans!

Hi there are using WordPress for your site platform?
I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create
my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what
all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
