If you are looking to give a gift this holiday season that also gives back, this phone case collection will protect the recipient's smartphone while also empowering women in development communities.

kidogo kidogo is an organization that sells a variety of phone covers in hope of helping low-income women in Tanzania obtain cell phones of their own. 30% of the profits from their Safari phone case collection goes towards this cause, while half of little by little cases sold are donated.

40% of women in Tanzania do not have access to a mobile device, which can restrict their ability to communicate, run businesses and stay informed. This is even more prevalent in rural areas. This makes phone access a key part of finding alternative income and eradicating poverty.
