When Kenton Lee first saw a shoeless girl in Nairobi, Kenya in 2007, an idea started growing in his imagination: What if you could find a way to make a difference for the 300 million children around the world who have no shoes? He came up with a simple invention that is already changing lives – a durable sandal that expands five sizes in five years, growing with the child.
Kenton Lee’s simple idea has finally become a reality. Since launching theshoethatgrows.org, his idea is spreading quickly across the internet. People are hungry for a way to really make a difference in the lives of poor children, and this idea is not only clever, it’s compassionate and brilliant.
