Sharon's Shoes

One of our friends, Sharon, makes homemade sandals.  She so generously sent down the pair of shoes on the left, along with a book with more models, some glue, and forms for the sandals.  Tissean, our main shoe maker, took the pair of shoes Sharon sent down and made this smaller pair for an employee's child.  Pretty impressive, right?

Hopefully Sharon will be coming out in November to teach our boys some more sandal strategies.  


  1. Great work!!! I am wondering if those sandals will be made for the children of the orphanage or if they will be up for sale to the public?? I think they look comfortable and practical for the children!! What a gift to be able to duplicate something by visually disecting it!! Wonderful!!

  2. Hi,
    I was thinking of you the other day and the next day I find out that you might be back. Call me if you are looking for something to do.

    I know that the work you have done at the orphanage will live in the hearts and minds of the children a life time.

  3. Hi, my name is Keely and I am thinking about heading down to Haiti to do Disaster relief with Hands On. I was also thinking about staying longer to teach english as a second language. I was wondering if you could offer me some advise about where to work and what program to work for? I would greatly appreciate your insight? It looks like you are doing some truly awesome things. I hope to hear from you soon.
