The Shoe Aid Project aims to improve living standards in many communities in Cameroon by providing donated shoes free of charge and by supporting local shoemakers.
Distribution of free shoes offers men, women and children new opportunities. It offers them a new kind of freedom because they can walk about without being afraid that they might get injured or pick up an infection. As a result, children have improved access to adequate education because they can attend school more regularly and also voluntarily take part in sports. It also improves working conditions for people who often get injured at work because they don’t have the right kind of footwear.
