Re-box Shoes

In poor areas of Africa, many children do not have their own shoes and are plagued by the flea. Fleas are parasitic insects that has led to poor Africans mortality rate of up to 50%, but poor Africans do not know how to make shoes. With limited resources throughout camps, I wanted to create something to teach them create shoes through the use of themselves hands and imagination.RE-BOX SHOES is packaging aid offers an opportunity to teach the poor knit all kinds of shoes with ribbons and tell them that creating can make life better. This invention not only means end poverty by saving resources and green consumption, but also helping the poor.
