Mission Statement

Shoeman Water Projects is dedicated to providing sustainable solutions that increase access to clean water and improve the quality of life for those in need.

Description

Shoeman Water Projects envisions a world without water poverty, and what we do to make that world a reality hinges on the translation of a mission into real-world work; true advocacy takes not just education but sweat--to toil beside each other to bring clean water.

Shoeman Water Projects collects donated shoes - any kind, new or gently used - from schools, churches, businesses and shoe drives, exports the shoes to street vendors in places like Haiti, Kenya and South America and uses the funds from exporting for clean water programs in communities around the world.

The secondhand shoes are a valuable product for street vendors to sell at affordable prices. The end users are people who do not have shoes and cannot afford to purchase new shoes. The shoes protect the new owner’s feet from foot abrasions, parasites and mites.

Funds generated from the export of shoes provide well drilling rigs, water purification systems, and hand pump repair. People who thirst receive fresh drinking water.
