Our Work

With your support we have helped 10,000 African orphans since we launched in 2003

That's the amazing impact you have when you buy a pair of Soul of Africa shoes. Because for every pair you purchase we give around £5 to aid our work in Africa. Projects we've hand chosen to help provide education and care to children orphaned by South Africa's AIDS pandemic.

Why Aid Through Trade?

A wise man once said "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" and Soul Of Africa's philosophy of aid through trade echoes that thought. The fact is while cash can help and temporary employment can solve problems in the short term, the lasting solution to communities in need is self-sustainable employment.
