Send Boots to Needy Students in Turkey

Boots4kids project of BTF (Bridge to Turkiye Fund) supplies boots to the financially challenged kids in the rural parts of Turkey. Your donations make this project possible. The brand new boots do more than just keep these children’s feet safe and warm but also help to warm their hearts and boost their self-esteem. Many economically challenged families can not afford to buy shoes for their kids and these children go to school with whatever they can find to wear. Boots4kids’ mission is to give these children access to a pair of warm shoes that will protect them from the cold winter weather.

 

BTF partners with local manufacturers and distributors to supply the boots. A pair of boots costs an average of $15 and make children smile. Most Boots4kids field leaders and champions are schoolteachers of the children receiving boots. When BTF receives request letters from champion teachers we work on raising funds to deliver the request as soon as possible. Upon receiving the boots, teachers follow up with BTF by sending pictures from the field.

 

This past winter BTF sent an additional 41 pairs of boots to the Beyazit Village Mehmet Mumcu Elementary School in rural Sanliurfa. Project pictures sent by teacher Busra Disli at Beyazit Village School are attached for your review.

 

 

Every $15 you contribute to this project will warm up two little feet and a little heart.

 

Thank you very much for your continual support.
