Soles of Hope

Donate a Sole, Save a Soul

Oak Park, IL


The goal of Soles Of Hope is to change the future of children in unreachable and remote areas of Ghana. Based on Biblical principles, SOH is a charity committed to helping children who have been subject to child labor or those at risk of becoming so, and to provide school supplies and shoes to those children who travel daily to school with no shoes. Our vision is of a world where children are not enslaved, where families are restored, those who are disadvantaged have choices and hope, and all children have a voice. It is also our mission to bring lasting and positive change to lives, rescue children from enslavement and those at risk of becoming so, through front line work, prevention and advocacy, facilitators and enablers, and, galvanizing people and resources in the U.S and worldwide.
