Our Founders


Katie Walters is the founder + visionary behind Francis + Benedict. God ignited her heart for the women of Togo when she visited there in July of 2015. Francis + Benedict is the marriage of her love for well-made, fashion-forward clothing and seeing women worldwide excel at what God has called them to.



Francis and Benedict Avoyi are our partners on the ground in Togo, encouraging and equipping the seamstresses as well as navigating all overseas operations.
