basketball coach player and founder of Samaritan’s Feet Manny Ohonme

LISTEN TO OUR EPISODE WITH MANNY HERE:
Manny Ohonme was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. After winning a contest put on by Christian missionaries from Wisconsin, he earned himself "his first ever pair of shoes" at 9 years of age, as well hope and inspiration for his future.
With both of these new possessions, he honed his skills in basketball to be recruited to play on a full athletic scholarship in America at the University of North Dakota- Lake Region for the men's basketball team, allowing him to earn both his bachelor's and master's degrees.
After years of success in America's technology sector, he returned home to Nigeria and was moved after seeing many children living without shoes. In 2003, he and his wife Tracie formed Samaritan's Feet.
Since then, Samaritan's Feet has achieved an overall Four Star ranking from Charity Navigator, the highest ranking possible. 97.5% of the organization's expenses go towards distributing shoes worldwide, with 1.2% being reserved for fundraising efforts and 1.1% being reserved for administrative salaries.
