Shoes for the Masses – Darryl Carnly

There are 300 million children in the world who do not have shoes.. The My 360 Project is changing that through innovation.

Experts teach people how to build the shoe and then they build them for the My 360 Project. Volunteers deliver the shoes to poor communities around the world. Through community, a seed of hope is planted into the lives of others. This non-profit is about sustainability, community, and economy. With Darryl Carnly, CEO, My 360 Project.
