Shoe4Africa is a 501 (c)(3) organization. EIN/Tax ID # 02-0766-269

Our Mission Statement is...

Our challenge is to listen and work with communities to better lives focusing on Health & Education.

HIV/AIDS AWARENESS

Holding sporting events where PHO give out advice, counseling, and direction.  Getting Olympic athletes to inspire the crowds to get tested, be made aware of the issues, give out thousands of free T shirts 'Promoting AIDS Awareness' in the de-stigma fight, printing leaflets (a first) in the Kalenjin tongue for people where we host our AIDS AWARENESS races and more....

EDUCATION

Handing out AIDS Awareness kits to schools, working with preventative health lessons, sponsoring students, donating Nooks/laptops to distribute greater knowledge, and yes, we have built four public schools and renovated classrooms at another!  Bringing sports and educational equipment to schools that need it.  Holding peace sports days for schools and more

WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT AND PEACE

Women’s empowerment soon followed, if you go to Shoe4Africa races you will see they are somewhat different from other Kenyan sporting events.  Our Shoe4Africa races have developed a lot of local talent & given away shoes/T shirts, cash & more. We continue with yearly events.

HEALTH

It began, inadvertently with health, a covered toe shoe can easily prevent hookworm. Learning the horrors of malaria we began awareness classes to help prevent the spread of that disease, but our main health initiative must be giving East Africa it's first ever public teaching children's hospital. A healthy Africa is one that will be self-reliant and a strong foothold for the future generation of positive change.
