Supporting Children Across The World

Who We Are

Our Impact

How It Works

There are an estimated 300 million children in the world for whom walking with shoes is a rarity. This makes them extremely vulnerable to infection by parasites, such as hookworm; while injuries to the feet and ankles can lead to ulcers and other conditions which are almost always left untreated. Without shoes, many children are not permitted to attend school.

In our first year, we collected 4,805 pairs of shoes and distributed them in 8 countries, including in the UK. To date, in 7 years, we have now found new feet for over 2 million pairs of pre-loved children's shoes in 49 countries around the world.  

Whilst we’re experiencing uncertain times, what we do know is that the demand for your Sal’s Shoes has never been higher.

You can support us by sending your outgrown, but not outworn, shoes; or by helping us to fundraise.
