There are many Initiatives for a good cause in this world; for a better future, for development, resource, education, the list is endless. However, some of them manage to touch your heart and one such cause that I really appreciate is 'Her Own Two Feet". Any initiative that encourages hard work, appreciates skills and repays it gets five stars in my book.

Her Own Two Feet is a social enterprise initiated by Marshal Direct Fund, a US-based non-profit that builds schools in Pakistan.

Silbi Stainton, founder of Marshal Direct Fund, saw the need of utilizing the talent of women in rural and effected regions of Pakistan to help them sustain on their own two feet.

"Several years ago, while leading Marshall Direct Fund, I came to know the work ethic of the women of Pakistan. Even with temperatures rising to 125 degrees some days, women are dutifully found in the fields harvesting crops from dusk to dawn, or found stitching clothing for their neighbors and friends for a small fee in the steaming urban streets. All of this with a baby on her hip/back and 3 or 4 other children at her side." - Silbi Stainton

Her Own Two Feet is a line of flip flops that are handcrafted by these struggling yet strong women who are in need of our support. These poor women earn approximately $2 a day which is almost nothing in order to survive. Every pair of flip flops you buy will help Marshall Direct Fund to assist these women with vocational and business training to help them reach higher income levels.

The flip flops cost $45 which some may find hefty, but keep in mind its to help support these poor women make a livelihood. Better to buy and support instead of randomly give to the women begging on the street and not willing to do any hard work? I say yes!
