Sometimes going barefoot is a good time – but only when having shoes is still an option. Many children don’t have that option. This means they can’t attend school and it also puts them at risk for water- and soil-borne illnesses and parasites. Problems so easily solved by a pair of shoes.
That’s why Feed the Children is proud to be partnering with TOMS to get new shoes on the feet of kids who need them and treat those who we didn’t quite get to in time.
When we give shoes with school uniforms, class attendance jumps by 62%. A pair of shoes seems like such a small thing, but it’s so important for kids who wouldn’t have any without the support of TOMS and donors like you.
