Impact

We will be working with Ruben’s Shoes, a Registered Canadian Charity who have been delivering shoes to the Dominican Republic for 5 years.

The Story: Kelly Strongitharm, has been sponsoring Ruben through World Vision since he was three years old.  After seven years of watching him grow up through pictures and letters, Kelly was finally able to meet him in 2012 and her life was forever changed. The connection between them was instant and they gave each other unconditional love and complete understanding despite being from opposite parts of the world.  In 2013, RS founder Kelly had the intention to collect a few hundred pairs of shoes from her friends and send them over to Ruben and his community in the Dominican Republic.

We will work to deliver shoes, connect with the kids in the local communities and change lives in an underserved neighborhood to bring fun physical activity and bring Sole Girls into their lives!

We will work alongside local community members to provide footwear to those in need while spending time merging cultures and building relationships. On our trip, you will have the opportunity to experience and learn about a different culture first-hand.
