Buy new school shoes for 10 orphans in Uganda

A microproject by Mountains of hope childrens ministries Vetted since 2011 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified


The project will buy original leather shoes for 10 kids. The shoes will last longer (more than a year). Children have always been going bare foot to school daily. They have been promoted to new classes, so kids will have new shoes in their new classes in the new year.These children will be enabled to attend school regularly with their new long lasting leather shoes. They will not fall sick so often as they have been affected before.

Currently the project is facing a challenge of treating children due to rapid spread of diseases affecting feet, most of the kids go bare foot to the latrines, most of these school latrines are dirty so they have to step on urine and other dirty stuff in there, these new shoes will enable them keep healthy both at home and in school.Over 100 children face the same challenge in our community.


Children will be bought new pairs of original leather shoes to enable them continue their education and enable them have better and healthy lives, this will reduce spread of illnesses and diseases caused by germs contracted from the latrines and on the ground.

Long-Term Impact

Children will be able to put on their shoes while going to school, in return this will significantly reduce disease out breaks and cracking of their feet due to poor hygiene caused by stepping on the ground.
