The Shoe That Grows: Q1 2022


We're humbly grateful for our continued partnership with The Shoe That Grows. And, we have an update for the first quarter of 2022.

When buying something from MORJAS, you’ve actively contributed to helping kids access shoes. 1 % of everything we sell is donated straight to our non-profit partner, The Shoe That Grows.

We’ve done this since we started working with them in November 2018. In addition to this contribution, we’re also very motivated to help stimulate local production and job creation. How? The Shoe That Grows manufactures its shoes locally in Mombasa, Kenya. Using local resources is a key in philanthropy. Otherwise, you might risk erupting and de-motivate the local growth and development.

We’ve got some updates from the team at Because International. Emily, Kayla and Andrew were recently in Kenya and did a small shoe distribution. They had an impactful experience distributing shoes to kids who, unfortunately, struggle with jiggers. Jiggers are bugs that eat the flesh of the feet which is something many kids who don’t have access to shoes struggle with.

Giving these kids shoes means that they will be able to live and play like every child should. We’re beyond thankful for you supporting our local eco-system of giving back to our community. The quote from Emily below says it all:

Q1 2022 Q1 2022

"I would think it a basic human right to have access to treatment and shoes. It’s hard for me to imagine being the parent of any one of these kids and seeing them dealing with jiggers and have no way to afford treatment."
