Here’s what Vikram Arun has to say about this project.

Hi, I am Vikram Arun -a 11th grade student from Bangalore.

When I see children on the streets walking without footwear, I think about the 300 million children around the world who don’t have a pair of shoes. I was very inspired when  I heard about the GreenSole foundation and saw this video

At Greensole, they recycle discarded shoes to comfortable footwear, keeping them away from landfills and provide them to the neediest through corporates, NGOs and schools.

I would like to appeal to you to donate money for the shoes (Rs. 199/- to refurbish one pair). You can also help by donating old/torn shoes that can be made into new footwear.

Thanks, I look forward to your donations.

Vikram.
