We give 1% of our revenue to help children walk in shoes to protect their feet. We do this by partnering with our friends at the The Shoe That Grows. With your help we use the positive cycle of innovation to fight against the negative cycle of poverty.
The power of you
When buying something from Morjas you directly contribute to The Shoe That Grows. Pretty cool right?
The Shoe That Grows produce their shoes locally in Kenya. The result? 41 local jobs created and a reduced carbon footprint.
Created to grow
The shoes are constructed with the same mechanics as a belt, meaning that the shoe can grow up to 5 sizes. The result is a longer-lasting shoe in which the kids can grow.
The Shoe That Grows
Developed after seeing children at orphanages in Kenya walking barefoot since they outgrew their shoes at extreme pace, Kenton Lee decided to develop a shoe that can actually grow. With its expandable methods it can grow in 5 sizes and in 3 different ways: at the front, on the sides and at the back.
By focusing on local production, The Shoe That Grows creates jobs where the shoes are most commonly distributed. In the last 1,5 years 40 jobs has been created in Ethiopia alone.
