Used Shoes=New Opportunities


Soles4Souls’ micro-enterprise program is designed to create real economic change in developing nations.
We utilize gently used shoes and clothing as a resource to help entrepreneurs in developing nations with an opportunity to start and sustain a small business (a micro-enterprise) of their own. 
Because you donate the shoes and clothes you no longer need, Soles4Souls is able to provide a constant quality supply of product to entrepreneurs. Because of you, they can now lift themselves and their family out of poverty.

Here’s how it works:

1. Gently used shoes are donated from individuals, shoe drives and footwear companies.

2. Shoes are sent to Soles4Souls for processing and sold to entrepreneurs in developing nations.

3. Shoes and clothing provide a means to sustainable employment for those living in extreme poverty.

4. Revenue keeps Soles4Souls going! It gives us the ability to continue to provide new shoes all over the world.
