Who We Are

Soles For Jesus is dedicated to sharing the  love of Christ by distributing shoes to the under-served people  in sub-Saharan Africa. Since being founded in 2009 by Diane Studer, the organization has developed and expanded in exciting ways! We have a clear mission, an exceptional team and strong partnerships in the U.S. and Africa.

Where We Go



As you know from “Our Story,”  the vision for Soles for Jesus was received during Diane’s first trip to Ethiopia. Since then, SFJ has shipped and distributed shoes in many other countries. You can view the countries who have received shoes from us, since 2009.

 How We Do It

SFJ Warehouse, 2012

Soles For Jesus has an effective strategy in place for sending and distributing shoes in Africa. Most importantly though, we have partners in place. Shoes come to our warehouse through the generosity of countless individuals, churches and organizations who donate shoes and funds.

The shoes are received and distributed effectively because we link arms with like-minded organizations established in Africa. Our reports continually show that this mission is making an impact in communities that need both shoes and Jesus.
