TO PROVIDE SHOES FOR PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WHO CANNOT AFFORD THEM.
In our world today, there are over 2 billion people suffering from parasitic diseases that could be prevented if they just had adequate footwear. Yes, we said 2 billion.
In addition to disease and suffering, schooling plays a tremendous role in the lives of so many children. Without a pair of shoes, education is an unattainable goal. Without an education, children don’t develop the necessary skills to advance in today’s society and thus revert to violence and theft. If we truly want to create peace in this world, it has to start with the children. By putting shoes on the feet of kids, we empower them to pursue their dreams and rise above the poverty-stricken normality that plagues so many families in impoverished nations, including our own.
