HERE’S HOW TOMS GIVES TO PEOPLE IN NEED:
With every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need. So far, purchases of TOMS shoes has allowed 70 million new pairs of shoes to be donated to children in need in over 70 countries, across six continents. TOMS currently works with over 90 Shoe Giving Partners around the world to distribute our specially designed Giving Shoes. TOMS Giving Partners vary from a small orphanage that only works in Honduras to a leading global organisation such as Save the Children.
With every pair of eye wear purchased through TOMS Giving Partners, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need. TOMS has helped restore sight to over 445,000 people in need. Currently, 285 million people around the world are blind or visually impaired. 80% don’t have to be. TOMS works with 13 Sight Giving Partners to help restore sight by working with trained, locally based ophthalmologists and optometrists who are experts in sustainable eye care. TOMS invests in clinics. hospitals and locally based organisations.
With every TOMS Bag you purchase, TOMS provides a safe birth for a mother and baby in need. Purchases of TOMS Bags have helped provide safe birth kits and training for skilled birth attendants to help over 70,000 women give birth safely. TOMS Giving Partners are chosen because they work in countries with rates of maternal and neonatal mortality and high home birth rates in places like Bangladesh, Ethiopia and India.
With every TOMS Roasting Co. product purchased, TOMS help provide safe water to a person in need. More than 700 million people don’t have access to safe water systems, putting them at risk of water-related illnesses, forcing them to spend time collecting water from further away, when they could be in school. TOMS has helped provide over 400,000 weeks of safe water to people in need. TOMS is working with their Giving Partners who are experts in water sanitation and hygiene in countries such as Colombia, Guatemala, India, Malawi, Peru and Rwanda.
TOMS sources its coffee beans from farmers in the regions they help provide water for.
With every backpack purchased, TOMS will help stop bullying, one youth at a time. To date, TOMS has helped more that 44,000 youths through bullying prevention and response programmes.
