At Bene, the mission is clear – purchase a scarf - educate a girl. Bene was inspired by a study abroad trip to Ghana in 2011 where Michelle Blue, co-founder, visited various programs that take in girls and equip them with the tools to live independently. Michelle shared her experiences with friend and now co-founder Sasha Matthews and together they decided to work to make a positive difference. Bene provides culturally inspired scarves that are used as a tool for the development & empowerment of women all over the world. Through a partnership with SISTA Works, a portion of proceeds is dedicated to the support of 5 girls through a year of secondary education and Bene is committed to growing that number in the future. As you’ll see, a Bene scarf not only enhances your outfit, it enhances someone else’s future.
