Get more miles out of your used shoes.


Just like you, people living in extreme poverty want their family to thrive.
They’re willing to work hard, but there’s a big problem: job opportunities simply don’t exist.

      Taking precautions during COVID-19


      Practice social distancing by maintaining a 6 ft distance between yourself and other people. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting sick.

      Utilize masks and gloves to protect yourself. Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth covering or mask, and use gloves, when applicable.

      Be sure to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol can be used if no soap and water is available.
