How You Can Help

Send Shoes To Africa

Empower Someone Through Sports

Send a pair of running shoes you know that has at least another 100-miles of running still left in their life so they can be properly used for the health & fitness programs we promote. Please do not send shoes you are about to chuck away because you deem them useless.

Running shoes PREVENT hookworm and promote a person to adopt a more healthy lifestyle. We don't want to just hand out shoes; we hold races/events so people EARN shoes. Empowerment; not charity.

In 2007 Natalie Portman, spoke to InStyle magazine promoting our shoe program. She said, "I have a friend collecting shoes for Kenya—each pair that is worn will cut down on the spread of disease. It's about doing something constructive. If you are going to buy $200 nikes, then spend $7 sending your shoes to Africa. It's a nice balance."

[please] Send running/sports shoes to:

Shoe4Africa / M.Kiplagat
PO Box 6943
30100 Eldoret, Kenya
