Country of Implementation: Zimbabwe

Rated 18 Shoes is a Zimbabwe-based purpose-driven brand that empowers child marriage survivors by employing women who were subjected to child marriage to craft its handmade shoes and allocating profits towards social initiatives that help survivors including paying tuition fees for women and girls who want to continue their education. Child marriage robs 12 million girls of their education, basic human rights, and future every year and Rated 18 Shoes aims to give them the second chance they deserve. With Rated 18’s shoes being 100% handmade with waste African print fabric and other sustainable materials, the company also plays its small part in preserving the environment.
