November 2020, Bare Essentials

​Footprints of health, hygiene, and hope.​ ​ Thanksgiving 2020. In early November, as part of our outdoor “Bare Essential Needs” pilot, we partnered with Green sole Foundation to distribute upcycled footwear to 100 barefooted school children (ages 9-11) in Palghar District (Maharashtra).

We believe a simple pair of footwear can make an incredible difference in comfort and hygiene for the kids when stepping outdoors or walking long distances to school—a big Thanks to Greensole for helping us reach 561 children in micro-communities in 2020.

This past week marked the first step forward in our “Athletic Sponsorships” Program (more details soon). ​ And ​ today, we’re happy to share this work-in-progress alongside your stories of passion, hope, challenges, and optimism, even in adversity. ​ We’ve learned something new every day and continue to shape our programs through these learnings!
