Doing good, one step at a time
Since 2003, Soul of Africa has been making shoes on the African continent in order to support opportunities for employment. We help to empower individuals by stimulating local economies through industry and believe that sustainable employment sits at the heart of tackling poverty in Africa.
Our shoes are sold internationally, with the proceeds allowing us to maintain and grow as a social enterprise. What's more, any remaining profits are returned to local communities. We help to support inspirational projects that focus on the care of vulnerable children and access to education, skills development and employment opportunities.
Our shoes have been awarded the Proudly Made In Africa label for being ethically produced in Africa using local materials and creating a positive social impact.

This insightful discussion brought together experts from across the industry to discuss the huge potential of the African market, issuing a policy paper calling on the Government to assure continued 0% trade tariffs following Brexit. To download the full policy paper here.
