Soles For Jesus

Why Shoes?

Why Shoes?

Shoes. They are a basic luxury that we take for granted every day as we choose our favorite pair from our closet floor. Many of us are unaware that millions of people across our globe live barefoot lives. It is estimated that over one billion pairs of unworn shoes are taking up space in U.S. basements and closets. Some are outdated or outgrown, but many of them are in good condition and considered a treasure in a developing country.

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.
