Offering HOPE, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief.

WHY JIGGERS?

It all started with an encounter with a YouTube video – a video that broke our hearts took us WAY out of our comfort zones and led us to Uganda. Along the way, we realized we could not only help Ugandan children live lives free from jiggers, but we could help Ugandan men and women earn a fair wage by making the shoes that go on the feet of the children we treat. Jiggers are not like any other parasite. The health implications and social stigma that comes with them are crippling to those affected by them. We believe there is hope for the problem of jiggers in Uganda, and the way Sole Hope makes a difference is by helping the “next two feet” at a time become jigger free and remain that way.

Suddenly it made sense that somebody had to do something about this – and we were that somebody.
