Shoes That Grow

Published: December 8, 2017

Kenton Lee, the founder of the Shoe That Grows, spoke on Tuesday, Nov. 14, with business students about starting a non-profit organization. In 2007, while traveling in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, Lee saw a need for shoes that can grow as children get older. Lee was able to take his idea and make it a reality. Today, more than 100,000 pairs of shoes have been distributed in 91 countries. CWI business students were able to hear Lee’s story and learn about working in a global economy, raise money, and build a team that can help them make their vision successful.
