Fashion for Shujaa 2nd Edition

November was first declared as Military Family Month in 1996. Since then, November has been a time to acknowledge the tremendous sacrifices our military families make. They contend with separation from their families and adjust to new living situations and communities. Military Families embody strength, resilience, and courage. Care of military families and children sustains our fighting force and strengthens our nation’s families and communities’ health, security, and safety.


In recognition of this vital topic, fashion for fighters in Partnership with Lelesta Fashion house has organised a Fashion event dubbed Buy Kenya build Kenya that seeks to:
·      Bridge the fashion gap by actively identifying opportunities and providing a marketplace to help build MASE and start-ups while supporting the Kenyan government Big 4 agenda in the manufacturing sector,
·      To raise awareness of the needs of service members and their families through fashion.
·      To fundraise for the wounded, ill and injured veterans and service members.
