Giving back with OneChalé
After 5 years selling and delivering Chalé Socks all around the world, our hearts have been warmed by the smiles our products bring to your beautiful faces, and the pleasant reviews you have given us. This is what has kept us going!
We have been reflecting on the impact our brand is having on society.
It is our desire to keep spreading joy, happiness, and eliciting genuine smiles as we distribute our neatly-designed socks and products. At 5, we want to go an extra mile with OneChalé.
OneChalé is inspired by our own lived-experience as children growing up in the rural parts of Ghana, in a town called: Agotime Kpetoe.
My brother Mawunyo and I (Kudjo), the founders of Chalé Socks, experienced many hardships firsthand. As children, we performed everyday activities barefooted; we trekked long miles in search of water, barefooted; we walked to school without shoes, often pressing our feet on hot ground, on mud and sometimes on sharp objects. The gift of a pair of shoes, made a lot of difference.
We have exciting memories of when we received gifts such as crayons, drawing books, and (occasionally) shoes, from benevolent individuals and organizations through our local church, and can vividly recollect the positive impact it made on our childhood.
Now as ambitious entrepreneurs reflecting back on those hard times, we would like to use our enterprise and through OneChalé, give pairs of shoes to children in dire need of it. OneChalé would succeed only when you, our ever dear customers, support it, by either continuously patronizing our products or donating directly. The Ewes in Ghana say: “Nuvi na la, menye dzo duametor o” this saying could be translated as: “even the one who gives the smallest of gifts must be recognized and appreciated”.
