Our International Service Project
Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes around the world. Since 2006, they have distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries and all 50 of the United States.
Soles4Souls fights global poverty in two meaningful ways:
Free Distribution: New shoes donated by retailers and manufacturers help prevent debilitating diseases, allow children to attend school, and offer hope and dignity to those in need around the world.
Job Creation: Soles4Souls helps those devastated by poverty sustain small businesses through a microenterprise program. Volunteer and partners donate repurposed shoes that Soles4Souls sells to entrepreneurs in developing nations, creating a sustainable social enterprise model.
