ABOUT THE INITIATIVE
In a country with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world*, we're creating sustainable jobs with creative solutions.
TOMS has committed to create jobs through shoe production in Haiti and to help establish and support a responsible shoe industry in the country. As a locally staffed and operated facility, we can economically empower individuals while giving big businesses a footprint to work in Haiti in the future.

In addition, the Haiti Artist Collective commissions local artists to create limited edition TOMS Shoes, providing a global canvas to bring the beauty of Haitian culture worldwide. Each pair is individually hand-painted, letting you own a true work of art.
