Our Mission is to provide HOPE for widows, orphans and others in impoverished and forgotten communities around the world through the trade of shoe-making. Sole Hope teaches women skills in basic shoe making and helps them to create a long term sustainable business plan which will allow them to provide their family with a reliable source of income. Sole Hope strives to prevent disease, parasites and illness by putting free closed-toed shoes on orphans and others in desperate need. Sole Hope will provide our partnership communities with a minimum of a twelve month commitment of program support as well as supplying fabric, tools and materials during that time. Sole Hope operates as a group of inspired volunteers and none of the board members receive compensation.
