UNIFORM to Launch 'Go Back Give Back' Pop-Up Shop in NYC Featuring a Live Performance by Davido 7/28

Join UNIFORM Thursday at Bloomingdale's for an interactive shopping event to launch their menswear capsule collection at the Go Back Give Back pop-up shop.

A new clothing line manufactured on the continent while simultaneously doing good lands in Bloomingdale's 59th Street flagship for a menswear pop-up shop that you don't want to miss. Join UNIFORM Thursday, July 28, for an interactive shopping event to launch their menswear capsule collection at the Go Back Give Back pop-up shop.


UNIFORM produces its garments by working mothers in Africa's first fair-trade factories in Liberia, Morocco and Kenya. For every purchase made, UNIFORM donates a school uniform to a child in need. Where in Liberia, for example, only 30 percent of children are in school, 98 percent of the children of UNIFORM's employees are enrolled. These mothers are stakeholders in the business—where the working mothers own 49 percent equity in the company—and receive living wages, free health care, 100 percent savings matching and literacy classes.

From 6:00-8:00 p.m. at The Lab (Lower Level), the launch celebration will include a special live performance by Nigerian recording artist, Davido, music from DJ XPect, live art by Moosh as well as bites and refreshments by Juice Press and Sigmund NYC. Customers who make a UNIFORM purchase of $100 or more will receive a special gift of Shea Moisture shaving supplies plus personalized wrapping in a UNIFORM gift box.

In addition to UNIFORM, the charitable “back to campus” pop-up shop features philanthropic brands TOMS and STATE Bags, supplying sharp looking wardrobe essentials including, shoes, eyewear, backpacks, chinos, collar shirts, tees and more.

The Go Back Give Back men’s pop-up shops run through September 1st in Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship, Huntington, San Francisco, Roosevelt Field, Century City, Stanford, Beverly Center, SoHo, Santa Monica, and on www.bloomingdales.com.

Pregnant Tanzanian Girls Now Have Hope Of An Education

In the past, Tanzania's pregnant girls of school-going age were banned from accessing an education. However, things are about to change!

If a young girl of school-going age happened to fall pregnant in Tanzania, it usually spelled the end of her schooling career — and the death of any prospects she may have had for a bright future. In Tanzania currently, an estimated 5 500 girls are forced to leave school each year due to pregnancy, according to the World Bank.

The Tanzanian government has announced a new programme aimed at addressing the plight of young girls who have been impacted by this discriminatory ban. Tanzania's Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology Leonard Akwilapo said young girls will now be offered an opportunity to further their schooling at alternative colleges.
