Fashion x Philanthropy

Manale International, a mission-driven fashion brand, is looking to raise awareness through  Fashion for Philanthropy.

Several projects in Ethiopia desperately need our attention.  Our sole mission is to rebuild schools in this beautiful country. We hope to tackle our educational projects, one by one, using funds generated by sales of our beloved scarves.

"My mission began during a 2016 visit to my home country. It was then that I was overwhelmed with the need to help. I saw the schools in distress and on the verge of collapsing. Dil-Ayen Elementary School is in the worst possible condition - classrooms are overcrowded, there is no bathroom or running water, and, in 2017, the area was hit by a hurricane, destroying what was left of the school".

Manalé Dagnew, Founder.                                                  

                                              How you can make a difference

1. Purchase a scarf 
The scarves, crafted in traditional Ethiopian prints, combine Manale's eye for design with her humanitarian soul. 70% of the profit will go towards the rehabilitation of Dil-Ayen Elementary School in Northern Ethiopia, thus providing a space conducive to education in which children can thrive.
