fashionABLE began as a small campaign of the Mocha Club in the fall of 2010 to fund skills training for women who graduated from our partner Women at Risk. It started with just one scarf that we promoted to our members, and now the brand has grown into a business that employs almost 100 women in Ethiopia, featuring extensive scarf designs as well as a leather line.
After operating under the Mocha Club / African Leadership organization for a little over 3 years, in January 2014, fashionABLE became an independent for-profit company. By not living under the confines of a non-profit, fashionABLE is allowed room for growth, and the ability to focus solely on their passion to provide business opportunities across Africa.
Mocha Club continues to support Women at Risk’s rehabilitation efforts and skills training in Ethiopia under our Economic Freedom project area, as well as continuing to find & support innovative solutions like fashionABLE in communities across the continent.
Mocha Club and fashionABLE remain in an ongoing partnership, working together to create exclusive products that tell the story of the power of investing in a woman.
