We are a grassroots non-profit & youth-run organization, working to end poverty & inspire social entrepreneurship one STEP at a time.
The majority of people who own shoes do not make any attempt to make them last longer. They are chucked away at the first sign of tear. Partnering with Clothesline of the Canadian Diabetes Assosciation, we collect these "used" shoes so that they can be used by people who are not in the financial state to be able to afford new shoes.
One of the most important goals of Shoes to End Poverty is to raise awareness about our cause. We feel as if not enough people understand the magnitude of poverty that exists in our communities. To this extent, we raise awareness by social media, and appearances on TV & local newspapers.
