£332raised of £4,000 target by 10 supporters

Weʼre raising £4,000 to Support ‘the shoe that grows’ and raise money for shoes to enable children to go to school and prevent against soil acquired illnesses

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The Shoe That Grows is actively changing childrens lives everyday! Children have to wear shoes to attend school. Some don‘t have shoes because they have out grown them or the shoes are broken or simply never owned a pair of shoes. Without shoes, children are especially vulnerable to soil-transmitted diseases and parasites that can cause illness and even death.

Briefly think how difficult life would be without a single pair of shoes. The Shoe That Grows can adapt up to 5 shoe sizes in 1 shoe by simply adjusting the straps on the shoe. The cost of each pair of shoes is just £12.00 .

Please donate what you can. As a family, we plan to personally distribute the shoes as well, on our next visit to South Africa. We will be visiting some of the poorer townships and with your support, the childrens lives will improve in more ways we can imagine. Thank you so very much for your support, encouragement and donations.

Best wishes

    Hi everyone :) Firstly we would like to thank you very much for your donations! Without you, we wouldn’t be able to help bring much needed support with the Shoe That Grows to children who desperately need them. We have a fundraising event taking place on 28 April where we are hoping to raise as much as possible to help achieve our target. We will update you following this event. Best wishes Leech family
