Eradicating poverty through improved education, at home and abroad

Posted 08 April 2021 in Youth Education

Ruben's Shoes Society

Funded since 2017

We believe education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and is a fundamental human right that all children deserve to have. Our mission is to educate and empower the next generation of leaders in Canada and abroad to create permanent, long lasting change and do our part in eradicating poverty.

Why we fund Ruben’s Shoes Society 

We invest in social impact leaders—and the leaders of Ruben’s Shoes Society are one great example of why. They were so passionate about improving educational opportunities for Indigenous youth that they left their steady jobs and financial security to start the organization. They believe all children deserve a healthy place to learn—and we believe in the way in which they’re making it happen.
