About The Shoe That Grows
Because International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that believes that everyone living in desperate poverty, especially a child, deserves opportunities to succeed. Our mission is to use the positive cycle of innovation to fight the negative cycle of poverty. Our first product - The Shoe That Grows - has been designed specifically for kids living in poverty. With shoes, kids are healthier, attend school more often, and are more confident. The Shoe That Grows has 5x the impact of ordinary shoes because it expands 5 sizes and lasts for years. Over 100,000 pairs have been distributed in over 90 countries, and with production starting in Ethiopia, we're not only blessing kids with shoes but people with jobs. We're committed to making things better by making better things and look forward to releasing our next product soon while also coming alongside local entrepreneurs to help them make their own innovative ideas come to life.
