Our Charities

Our charities champion causes that are close to our hearts.
We love figuring out ways we can support them to make a difference.

Small Steps Project

Small Steps Project provides families that survive on municipal rubbish dumps and landfill sites with shoes and aid that will enable them to take small steps out of poverty.

Via donations from every recycling sack we sell, First Mile has helped to fund resources over several years, from food to school buses.

Currently we support an outreach programme in Nairobi for children whose parents work on a rubbish dump, trying to salvage what they can to make a living. The money we donate provides support to over 150 children, including food and water. It creates a safe sanctuary for these young children where they can wash their hands, brush their teeth, play and learn, and essentially experience a day of normality. The programme also offers medical care for those in need.

Rewilding Britain

Rewilding Britain is our First Mile Team Pick for sponsorship in 2019, working to bring nature back to life around Great Britain.

We admire the proactive way they celebrate nature and biodiversity on a community and personal level, as well as their advocacy on behalf of endangered habitats and species.

Rewilding hopes to re-charge our connection to the land and maintain its health for future generations. First Mile are cheering you on!
