Challenge

The shoes we bought a year ago are now worn out, 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.

Solution

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.
