Description

WHAT IS A SOLE HOPE SHOE CUTTING PARTY?
The journey to a new life for a child infested with jiggers in Eastern Uganda begins with you, a pair of scissors, and friends.

Shoe cutting parties utilize old jeans to create patterns that are used to create shoes for children living in areas of eastern Uganda affected by jiggers. Hosting or participating in a Sole Hope Shoe Cutting Party is one of the best ways to get involved and to make a difference right where you are. Parties can be done with just a few friends or 100 or more! It’s not only fun and easy, but every single piece of fabric that you cut can change a child’s life. It will also ensure employment for the tailors and shoemakers at Sole Hope, which in turn fuels the local economy in Jinja, Uganda.

Here is a video link to learn more about jigger.. it is graphic FY.

Who is Sole Hope? Find out here.

Our Sole Hope event is going to be amazing. We will be taking our old jeans, cutting them into specific patters and getting them prepared for the Sole Hope ministry to make shoes out of our jeans. We are sooo fortunate. We do not have to worry about jiggers or about having shoes. Let's offer this same opportunity to the people of Uganda.

What to bring?

- old jeans you want to cut into patterns, fabric scissors

- willingness to serve

Why is there a cost to this event?

It cost $10/person to ship the patterns and make a pair of shoes for a person in Uganda. The extra $2 of the ticket cost will go towards the Sole Hope Foundation and providing a full day's medical care at the Hope Center for TWO people. You can donate as much money as you feel lead to do so. All extra monies will be sent to Sole Hope.

Hope to see you there. (Location Address will be provided to each Ticket Purchaser)


Grab your old jeans, a few friends, and party with a purpose.
