Give a person a fish, they eat for a day; teach a person to fish and they eat for a lifetime.” 
Soles4Souls’ micro-enterprise program is designed to create real economic change in developing nations.
We utilize gently-worn shoes and clothing as a resource for individuals to start and sustain a small business (a micro-enterprise) of their own in places where job opportunities don’t exist.
Because you donate the shoes and clothes you no longer need, Soles4Souls is able to provide a constant quality supply of product. Because of you, they are able to generate the income they might not have otherwise. Because of you, they can now lift themselves and their family out of poverty.

Here’s how it works:

1. Repurposed shoes are donated by individuals, shoe drives and footwear companies.

2. Shoes are sent to S4S for processing and sold to vetted non-profit organizations on the ground in developing nations for an avg. of $1 per pair.

3. Our partners provide training and support where job opportunities don’t exist. Selling shoes generates income individuals might not otherwise have to lift themselves out of poverty.

4. The revenue keeps Soles4Souls going! It allows us the ability to continue to give the gift of new shoes all around the world.
