LAGOS, Nigeria – November 19, 2015 – On October 30, 2015 President Muhammadu Buhari announced, “Nigeria is broke.” Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation has over 170 million people, suffers from poverty, infrastructure, poor education, and corruption. Babajide Ipaye, founder of KEEXS, the first innovative and social footwear brand in Africa, believes this company may be the solution. “The citizens need to take more individual and collective initiatives towards correcting some of our social issues (Economy & Society) rather than sitting around complaining and waiting for our leaders to solve everything,” said the founder. So the mission of KEEXS is to pioneer innovation in footwear, bring exciting, fresh designs to life and empower communities through socially oriented projects. At full establishment, KEEXS will contribute ten percent of profit towards poverty alleviation projects that are sustainable and scalable.
KEEXS is an African inspired range of casual footwear that “brings out the cool” in any man or woman. It’s perfect for express people with unapologetic style choices. This brand will be the first of its kind in Africa. They will create African inspiration by hiring artists, designers for the brand. It will create thousands of jobs and reduce poverty by ten percent. It will be open and collaborative with the community to create unique and affordable products. However, before everyone can enjoy this brand can produce exciting designs and empower communities in Africa, KEEXS needs help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise £17,500 by December 25, 2015. The funds raised will go towards setting up their initial factory.
To help bring this innovative and social footwear brand to life, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between January 2016 and March 2016.
Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help KEEXS reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
