PARAGUAY // Sept. 2018 TOMS Shoe Giving Trip

I’m insanely grateful to have worked with TOMS giving partners, who are deeply empathetic people and dedicated to the improvement of their country.

In attempt to eradicate poverty, these giving partners are legitimately finding SOLUTIONS. — This calls for a holistic approach and involves considering a multitude of factors between behavior, economics, education, etc.

The Paraguay partners strategically work to implement sustainability through micro-financing and use the TOMS shoes as incentives when the loans are repaid— rather than irresponsibly giving money or materials alone, our giving partners empower independency.
