Support VITAE London

 

 

Vitae London is an emerging watch brand, who, with each watch they sell they help support a child through education across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Since launching 3 years ago they’ve sold in over 30 countries, had the likes of Richard Branson endorse them, distributed over 2,000 items of uniform and over 100 solar lights to children in need. 

 

We're delighted to share that we invested in VITAE, meaning it also belongs to the BYP community! If you'd like to support, use the discount code KIKE10 to receive 10% off any purchases you make.
