Be In Their Shoes

Final report

The Be In Their Shoes – BITs project was designed to run for just 3 weeks: from the 22nd of July to the 10th of August. The managers of the project, two interns at Mann Deshi (Marcel Tavelini and Emilia Galiano), wanted it to end before they left the Foundation and they decided to set the delivery of the shoes for the 14th of August. To avoid misunderstandings about the total final amount (published on the 11th of August) and to stop the donations coming in from Global Giving, the project managers asked to deactivate the project after the 10th of August.


Mann Deshi Foundation has agreed to advance the sum collected through the donations, to allow the managers to buy all the shoes and the sports equipment in time for the delivery event. With the funds advanced by Mann Deshi the managers were able to buy:

   185 pairs of shoes

   189 pairs of socks

   1 punching bag

   8 pairs of boxing gloves

   3 tennis balls

   4 tennis rackets

   6 cricket tennis balls

   4 hockey balls

   6 rubber sports rings

   2 wooden discuses

   6 frisbees

   6 badminton shuttlecocks

   24 shin guards

   2 pairs of goal keeper's gloves

   16 taekwondo dresses

   2 chest guards

   2 double kick pads

   2 head guards

   1 boxing pad

   1 boxing rubber ball

   45 pairs of football socks

   1 goal net

   7 football balls

   5 volleyball balls

   2 baseball bats

   4 baseball balls

   2 cricket bats

   22 hockey bats

   3 pairs of shoes for the trainers

   8 dental shields

   4 hand wraps

   12 leading anklets

   10 knee caps


This sports equipment will be used by the children participating to the Mann Deshi Champions Program: they will keep the shoes and the socks, while the rest will be kept in a storehouse in the practice field.
