The interior of Guyana is populated by nine of the region’s indigenous tribes. Over 28,000 children of these tribes travel miles to school by kayak, as well as on foot, however most of them do not own a pair of shoes and so they make this daily journey barefoot.

Since discovering this truth about the children of the interior, ReThink has held several discussions with the President and First Lady of Guyana, in the hopes of providing these children with this most basic need. The solution was discovered in the ‘The Shoe That Grows’, a sturdy shoe designed to grow 5 sizes, and therefore service those in need for an extended period of time.

This has resulted in the Kind Soles programmes, through which the organization seeks to partner these communities with well-meaning, Caribbean based companies who can facilitate the provision of these shoes.
