The Universal Shoebox

We've been asked whether it was possible to make an ageless, unisex box to appeal to any child. So here are some ideas on how to make your Shoebox Gift universally appealing across the age groups...

WASH Sanitation Project

Partly funded through the Welsh Government, we were able to upgrade toilets in 10 schools in Kumi, Uganda, whilst 6 benefited from the installation of a permanent hand-washing station. Through donor support we aim to help all 150 schools in Kumi provide their schoolchildren with facilities to wash their hands.

Meet us for Coffee & Cake

Come & say hello!
Following last year's successful Coffee & Cake tour, we are hitting the road again, packed with Shoebox leaflets, our new flat-pack Shoeboxes, and resource packs for schools and groups, to meet up with our volunteers up and down the country.

38,000 Shoeboxes head to Eastern Europe

We were delighted and humbled to send over 38,000 shoebox gifts to children in Belarus, Bosnia, the Ukraine and Romania last Christmas

Sanitation in Uganda

Having been successful in a bid for Welsh Government funding, we are piloting a sanitation scheme in Kumi, Uganda, to upgrade toilets and provide hand-washing facilities for 10 schools.
