OUR MISSION STATEMENT
In many developing nations, walking is the primary mode of transportation. Unfortunately, every day children and adults from underprivileged communities, locally and abroad, are prevented from attending school or unable to work because walking becomes unbearable without a decent pair of shoes. Walking without shoes leads to exposure to unsanitary conditions that lead to many diseases. Acknowledging the importance that a pair of shoes has in providing relief and transportation to individuals throughout the world, Shoes for the World Foundation strives to create sustainable jobs and educational programs to children and adults, and provide them relief through the distribution of primarily walking shoes, but also shelter, clothing, and food. Shoe distribution is how we initially have access to children and their families, but our mission is expanded to also target the spiritual, emotional, and overall well-being of those we help by sharing the good news of the gospel.
Shoes for the World Foundation is a non-profit IRS Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization legally established in 2018. Donors can deduct contributions they make under IRC Section 170. 100% of your contribution will go towards acquiring or manufacturing shoes, as well to needy children and their families.
