Summary

This micro project buys good shoes to enable children continue going to school.When the children have an enabling environment for them to attend school,they are likely to complete education, 40 children in rural schools who have been attending school on bare foot have already been identified to benefit,we have a plan in place to raise $1500 by January 2017 to enable us buy shoes and school socks for the kids before the beginning of next school term.

Challenge

Guardians are 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 filthy 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

We will ensure that 40 children receive a well-rounded and strong education so they can grow up to be knowledgeable and prepared contributors to their communities and our world. Mountains of Hope also knows that no child can be successful on their own. That's why we support the whole community by distributing water filters, healthy food, and other services so that they can support the child all throughout their education.
