SOLE MATES

Standing tall, walking with dignity, connecting townships

Where it started
When Siyabonga Mini from Kayamandi township in Stellenbosch discovered that 35 of the children in his dance group did not have school shoes, he reached out for help.

His action inspired the launch of the first-ever Sole Mates campaign – an initiative that is now reaching out to learners in the township of Mamelodi in Tshwane (Gauteng) – over 1400km away.

When
The campaign runs from 16 March to 6 April 2021.

Help us collect at least one pair of shoes for every ten kilometres that connect these two townships. That’s 140 pairs – but let’s reach for the stars!

From mates for soles of little feet – to pen pals 1400km away!

The campaign is not only looking to find mates for the soles of little feet; it would also like to build a bridge between two communities that may otherwise never have connected. So, every learner who receives a pair of shoes, will also have the opportunity to write a letter to a fellow learner at the other end of the 1400km.
