This project will buy 40 pairs of leather shoes for 40 needy children,a year ago,Globalgiving donors gave for the purchase of 20 pairs to needy children. The new shoes would enable children maintain good hygiene to avoid going to school on bare foot
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.
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.
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.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Build a Home for 50 Orphans in Uganda. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
