JK Nyerere Primary School Donate

We give life-changing shoes to incredible kids.

With shoes, kids are more healthy, attend school more often, and are more confident. The Shoe That GrowsTM has 5x the impact of ordinary shoes because it expands 5 sizes and lasts for years. Can you help us get more shoes to kids today? Yes! I can distribute shoes to kids I can’t distribute The Shoe, but I’d like to donate so others can!

Over 1.5 billion people suffer from soil transmitted diseases worldwide

Without shoes, children are especially vulnerable to soil-transmitted diseases and parasites that can cause illness and even death. Children who get sick miss school, can’t help their families, and suffer needlessly. And since children’s feet grow so quickly, they often outgrow donated shoes within a year, leaving them once again exposed to illness and disease. The Shoe That Grows can change all that.

The Shoe That Grows can change all that.

Ludi’s Story

Ludi is 12 years old, and lives in Haiti. Her lifelong dream is to grow up to be a teacher. But school is 5 miles away, and shoes are required to attend. Some years, Ludi had shoes and could go. Other years, she didn’t. Now, because of The Shoe That Grows, Ludi always has a pair of shoes that fit. She can attend school and pursue her dreams. Click below to share about The Shoe

Do you our mission?

Do you want to help change a kid’s life?

There are 2 main ways you can help!

1. Take The Shoe to kids who need it

2. Donate so others can take The Shoe

1. Can you take The Shoe to kids in need?

We work with non-profits, churches, schools, and individuals to get The Shoe to kids living in poverty. Perhaps your organization already serves children, and you’re looking for more ways to help. Or maybe you’re traveling to an impoverished area and know you could make a HUGE difference with a single duffel bag of The Shoe That Grows. Whatever the case, we’d love to partner with you to get shoes to those children. The Shoe is easy to transport and makes a big impact. Please contact us below to learn more!

"Communication was super easy and we were even able to get in touch with the founder, Kenton Lee! The shoe is designed to fit the needs of kids perfectly. It was a wonderful experience to be able to help kids who had never owned their own pair of shoes put these on."

Karli Floyd - Pacific Lutheran University

"There were some shipping complications the day before I was supposed to leave for Haiti but The Shoe That Grows worked miracles to get the shoes to us on time, and free of charge. Amazing customer service and amazing shoes!"

Sara Bruce - Bethesda Evangelical Mission

"The people I dealt with at your organization were lovely and the shoes themselves are FABULOUS. The rural villagers in Cameroon who I delivered them to LOVE the shoes."

Hilary Godwin - Conservation Action Research Network

2. If you can’t take the shoe, will you help fund those who can?

Every $15 provides a child with a long-lasting pair of shoes, and your donation will go to to those most in need.

Yes, I can donate!

Or, help us with a very special fundraising effort!

Right now we’re matching every donation made to SCM Medical Missions’ fundraising page below — when you donate $15 to SCM, we’ll send a pair to TWO children, instead of just one!
