The shoes help children get access to education and in some cases they may be be the first pair they have ever received.
We are so inspired by children like Calliope who have such a big heart and turn a small idea into a way to help others and create a positive impact.
Calliope started collecting shoes for Ruben's Shoes after discovering through a program called SOLE GIRLS that there are children in the world who don't go to school simply because they dont have proper footwear. 3 years ago, Calliope was nervous, and shy., and had no desire to participate in SOLE GIRLS or be a part of it until.. she learnt about our cause and it lit a spark inside of her! Her sense of community was developed and now she is committed to contributing yearly to Ruben's Shoes! Way to go Calliope!
