Soles4Souls

Together with Soles4Souls—a nonprofit creating sustainable jobs for women from impoverished communities around the world—Birdies is empowering women by creating micro-enterprise opportunities with our shoe donations that enable them to start their own businesses. This partnership also enables Birdies to reduce our ecological footprint by repurposing shoes that might otherwise have ended up in a landfill.

Birdies x Soles4Souls

To date, Birdies has donated 36,589 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls, giving women throughout the Caribbean, Central America, and Africa the opportunity to start their own businesses. On average, one pair of Birdies can generate nearly two weeks of income for a person living on less than $2 a day in countries like Haiti, Honduras, Malawi, and Tanzania. The shoes we’ve donated so far have provided 52 families with a year’s worth of food, shelter, and education.

In Her Shoes

Two of the most common goals that Soles4Souls’ participating female entrepreneurs share are ensuring that their children can attend school full-time and having the ability to buy their own land. Their independent shoe businesses enable them to achieve these goals, and in many cases, also accumulate a month-plus of emergency savings.

These female entrepreneurs describe the gravity of this impact as follows: a sense of pride for having successful businesses; more confidence in themselves; more respect and input in household decision-making; increased leadership roles in their community, like mentoring other women to start businesses; improved health and education for their families; greater optimism about their families’ futures.
