PUT FOOT FOUNDATION

Our Mission Statement

"Gifting young, under-privileged children "Hope, Pride and Dignity" through a pair of brand new, quality school shoes!"

OUR ORGANISATION

We are a volunteer based, proudly South African, Public Beneficiary Organisation (PBO) and Not-for-Profit Organisation (NPO) born out of the need to tackle the daily plight and indignity of children with no shoes. We operate across the whole of South Africa, with particular focus the less privileged and rural areas often overlooked by charities.

Nothing will ever prepare you to witness and experience a young child receiving their first ever pair of shoes
