Shoes that Grow
SHOES THAT GROW
Lack of shoes is a major problem in Africa. Children often get parasites and diseases when they do not wear shoes. Those that have shoes, quickly outgrow them. Kenton Lee developed “Shoes That Grow.” The shoes adjust by moving the straps in three main places – the toe, the heel and the sides.
The shoes are made from high quality rubber and leather last for five years and grow five sizes.
We reached our goal of 200 pair of shoes on July 24, 2018. Jeremy Walsh, Julie Wheeler and the people at Simply Referable Team of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Ellicott City, MD donated the final 39 pairs needed. We ordered and received 200 pair of shoes to give to children during our trip to Africa in October. Once the children at Mama Jane's, Rafiki and Shades of Hope School have shoes, we will venture out into the community to distribute shoes to the poorest of children. Thank you to the following people that have donated shoes.
