Help provide school uniforms for children in need around the world.
An estimated 385 million children around the world live in poverty. Unfortunately, this means many children miss out on an education because they simply can't afford it. Often, these children are required to wear school uniforms to attend school, but it can be too big of an expense for families who are already living in poverty.
Having access to the required uniform reduces absences, helps lower the dropout rate, and breaks the cycle of poverty for generations to come.
GreaterGood.org has partnered with Soles4Souls' clothing division, Clothes4Souls, to help address this problem. Clothes4Souls receives new apparel donations directly from retailers and manufacturers and they work with nonprofit partners around the world to identify orphanages, schools, and communities with the greatest need. Clothes4Souls is ramping up its school uniform efforts globally to acquire enough uniform pants, shirts and skirts to provide tens of thousands of children a new set each over the next two years. We need your help to ship and distribute these uniforms to children in need.
You can help. Just $2 can provide a new school uniform for one child in need. You can help make a difference in a child's life forever!
Through the distribution of shoes and clothing, Soles4Souls helps men, women and children living in poverty and those affected by natural disasters. In developing countries such as Haiti, Honduras, parts of Africa and Moldova, earning a sustainable income is most often hard to achieve. People want to work, they just need an opportunity. Soles4Souls provides new and used shoes and clothes to help entrepreneurs create small businesses. The entrepreneurs resell the shoes and clothing in their marketplace creating income for their families.
Greater Good Charities has ultimate authority and discretion with regard to the distribution of its funds. All expenditures made are consistent with the exempt purposes of Greater Good Charities.
