An example of how Social Innovation can change millons of lives

In the world there are more than 300 million children who have no shoes. And countless more with shoes that aren’t their size.

Children without shoes are susceptible to injury and parasites that infect humans through our feet. Often the problem is that the donated  shoes don’t fit the size of the people who receive it or once they get it. they are too small.

Sometimes, the most simple innovation can change millons of lives. This is the objetive of The Shoe That Grows, a sandal invented by the young Kenton Lee, that can adjust to their size. Each model, can grow five sizes so it can last almost five years, allowing children to grow in well-fitted shoes.
