Written By: MIM!—British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has been working with the United Nations Ethical Fashion Programme to produce bags and accessories in Kenya. The idea behind the initiative is to lift communities out of poverty using environmentally sustainable materials and processes. As Vivienne explains, "Charity = dependence, Work = control over your own life." Vivienne recently wrote about her first trip to Kenya and posted some amazing photographs on her blog, to learn all about her trip, visit Vivienne's blog: www.activeresistance.co.uk.
