Afrikicks is a non-profit committed to providing shoes to those stricken by extreme poverty and impacted by disaster around the globe.
Afrikicks was founded by Omarou Idrissa, a native of Niger Africa. Omarou’s goal was to provide relief to the people of his village, Niamey Talladjé who were suffering from extreme poverty, by collecting shoes from friends in the United States and distributing them throughout the village. Today our goal is to provide shoes to those stricken by extreme poverty and impacted by disaster around the globe.
There are millions of children in developing nations globally, whom walk barefoot through the unbearable roads and pavement subjecting them to infection and disease, often times leading to death. These conditions are preventing children from attending school and adults from being able to work furthering the chain of poverty in those countries.
By donating your gently worn (with love) shoes you are providing relief for a person in need and essentially changing a life.
