All began during the FIFA-World Cup 2006 in Germany.

The Togo national team was based in Wangen im Allgäu (near to the border of Austria/Germany/Switzerland).  When footballfans heard about the little girl Nourisson from Togo who was born with a cleft and urgently needing an operation, they began collecting money to help paying her life-changing surgery. Since then many honorable medical teams have helped more than 1600 children all over the world. So began the great idea and story of BigShoe…

Today BigShoe is as a unique symbol for a growing worldwide network of sport fans helping poor children with medical operations as well as to support youngsters to participate in our education with sport programmes.
