The Atinga Project

At Atinga, they believe walking a mile in someone else's shoes is the most powerful way to fight prejudice. The Atinga Project sells shoes made by Africans. Specifically, recycled taxi-tire sandals made by Rwandans. These sandals are not your typical flip-flops. They are hand-crafted by skilled artisan-shoemakers.
