At Portovelo, we want to help the world go places. Our shoe is designed not only for travelers and wanderlusts to go places in the world, but also for many children who have a dream to go places in life.
About 600 million children in the world today live on less than a dollar a day. More than 1 billion children are severely deprived of essential needs required to survive, grow and develop. These include needs like basic food and nutrition, access to clean water, healthcare, shelter and education.
We want to help these children go places in life too, and travel a road far beyond their wildest dreams.
And so every season, we partner with a charity organization dedicated to addressing the most pressing needs faced by kids in need today.
This season, we are paving the road towards hunger relief. Portovelo is proud to announce our partnership with the Flourishing Futures NGO in Ulan Bator, Mongolia: Every pair purchased will provide 15 meals to a hungry child in their care.
Flourishing Futures is a non-profit organization that provides food assistance to families living below the poverty line. Children in these families do not know when their next meal will be; many have become numb to hunger pangs. The meals we provide will help nourish them back to proper health, and give them a chance to attend school with an active, curious mind.
Join us in helping the world go places, one step at a time.
