Lenisa Patterson Koita

Project manager

Once upon a time, a little girl fell in love with fashion. Her entire life revolved around magazines and creating her own looks. Little did she know that the world had other problems. Whenever she went on vacation to Senegal, seeing other girls like her with no access to education really shocked her. Having grown up in Italy in nothing but comfort, made a promise to herself that she would return to her native land  and help those girls.

 

She created a sustainable interior design brand, that recycles and reuses african fabric to create modern and classy furniture. She uses a portion of the revenue to organise local workshops for girls who don’t have access to education, thus keeping the heartfelt promise she made all those years ago. My name is Amsatou Diop and this is my story.
