At Lela Designs, we create, manufacture and sell functional, fresh and fashionable apparel in innovative, environmentally-friendly fabrics. We recognize and appreciate the world we live in and look to ensure others have an equal opportunity to give back. Lela Designs is about support. Supporting a look, supporting the environment, supporting our fellow neighbor and supporting you, our customer. Our fashion-forward garments, manufactured in Canada, are perfect for any occasion from sport to daily wear and are made with the top-of-the-line fabrics that are environmentally-sensitive and milled exclusively for us.
Lela Designs is very proud that we have partnered up with Camfed who fights
aids in rural communities of Africa through educating young women. A portion
from each garment sold will go to Camfed to help further women’s rights to
have an education. We are very excited about the changes we can make and hope
you will support this worthy cause.
Camfed (The Campaign for Female Education) began in 1993 by supporting 32 girls in rural Zimbabwe. In 2005, more than 246,520 children benefited from Camfed’s program of educational support in some of the poorest regions of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana and Tanzania.
These young women – among them doctors, lawyers, teachers and businesswomen – are now sharing the benefits of their education with their communities. Alongside a vast network of volunteers in the communities where they work, CAMA members (graduated students of Camfed) supported more than 16,000 children to go to school through their own philanthropic initiatives.
