cases that care

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Hi everyone! Today I have an amazing company to tell you about called Kidogo Kidogo.


Kodogo Kidogo, a company started by two sisters, translates to "little by little" in Swahili. They created the company to help women in Tanzania have access to mobile technology. Their business is similar to Toms Shoes in that it is one-for-one. Your purchase puts something in the hands of a woman in Tanzania.


A mobile phone for a woman in Tanzania means a way to communicate with friends and family, a flashlight, a calculator, a radio, a way to make secure banking transactions, and more. You can read about women who have used the donations from Kidogo Kidogo to run a business, here. It truly is amazing how much empowerment comes to these women from a phone!

Kidogo Kidogo sells cases that help put technology into the hands of women across Tanzania. When you buy a case, Kidogo Kidogo provides a phone, or phone credits, to a woman who could not otherwise afford it. This company is working hard to create a positive change for women in Tanzania.  The cases not only benefit the women, but also other non-profit partners. For example, a portion of the profits from the sea turtle case are distributed to Sea Sense. Sea Sense works to conserve and protect endangered marine species.


I am a big fan of companies who try to help people. In fact, the store I bought the dress I wore yesterday from donates 10% of their profits to charity. When I heard about Kidogo Kidogo, I just had to share it with all of you! A mobile phone is something a lot of people take for granted. These women can truly benefit from them. Purchasing from Kidogo Kidogo not only gives you a cute case, but also helps these women. What more could you want!?  Their cases are so cute, too. I love little by little.
Kidogo Kidogo is giving away one of their phone cases to a reader of A Memory of Us! The winner will get to pick the phone case of their choice. They currently only have cases for an iPhone, but even if you don't have an iPhone you can still enter and give the case away as a gift!

  1. This is a great post. I love companies that help other people, rather than trying to make maximum profits.

    1. That is impressive! I feel like it would be a very hard language to learn and keep up with since it is not spoken often!
