Formed in November of 2014 by founder Alexis Hefley, UWEZO came from humble beginnings.
From one-on-one interactions with loyal customers to utilizing social media as a key resource, UWEZO has grown their brand into the committed company it is today.
Inspired by the formation of Hefley’s nonprofit Empower African Children, UWEZO found a new way to benefit the community that reaches beyond the classroom.
