Greensole India recycles discarded shoes into comfortable footwear for the underprivileged
New Delhi: Teenager Jagriti Khurkute is used to wearing hand-me-down clothes and slippers belonging to her elder sister. The only problem is that once the slippers break, as they often do, her parents are not able to buy another pair for a long time. Khurkute, 16, goes to Government Primary Ashram School, Hiradpada, a residential school aided partly by the Maharashtra government in Thane district’s Jawhar region. Being in a residential school, her need for a shoe is superseded by that of her sister, who has to walk 8km to college every day.
