The Swedish founders of Suecos® lived for years in Mexico and Central America and fell in love with its culture, customs, and people. Nicaragua and its inhabitants left a resounding impression. Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America, with over 70% of its people below the poverty line and over half the population under the age of 18.. This is why Nicaragua was chosen as a first ideal destination for our journey, and indeed by the end of 2011, approximately 20,000 custom-made clogs were already delivered to these amazing children in Nicaragua.

This couldn’t have been done without the outstanding help from our collaboration partner INFANCIA SIN FRONTERAS, an NGO
that has been helping Suecos assist thousands of children in Nicaragua and
the Dominican Republic. We would like to thank them for their collaboration,
without which this may not have been possible.After seeing the impact of giving our shoes to these children, we decided that A Clog for a Clog should further involve even more countries in the future. As a result we are currently working on expanding our collaborations, and we warmly welcome new organizations/partners to contact us.
