While some orphaned teenagers living at the Good Samaritan Children Home in Mathare, Kenya have been able to acquire mandatory school shoes-thanks to the donations given so far!- several are still waiting and hoping that someone will come to their aid.

Apart from the fact that buying shoes is a fulfillment of a mandatory school obligation, the teenagers who have benefited talk of the joy and confidence they have found in their new pair of school shoes. Majority of them share that the school shoes enhances their self esteem and assures them of continues stay in school throughout the school year. The teenagers say they "no longer feel embarrassed in our old shoes". They wish to say a big "Thank You!" to all those who have contributed in enhancing their self-esteem and more so in ensuring that their schooling remain uninterrupted.
