Soles4Souls is wearing out poverty by providing short-term relief and long-term solutions.
Short-term relief (free distribution): Soles4Souls works with over 1,200 non-profit partners including homeless shelters, after school programs, and disaster relief organizations to get shoes to those who need them the most, all around the world.
Long-term solutions (Job Creation/Micro-enterprise): In places like Haiti, Honduras and parts of Africa, finding a steady job with a sustainable income is extremely hard. Many live in deep poverty, meaning families live on less than $1.90 per day. The Soles4Souls micro-enterprise model is designed to create real economic change in developing nations. Soles4Souls utilizes new and gently-worn shoes as a resource to help people with an opportunity to start and sustain a small business (a micro-enterprise) of their own. This is a powerful way for people to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
