As one of the only Primary Schools in the area, most students walk up to 2 hours a day to reach school. Without proper footwear, the long trek can be difficult and sometimes even dangerous.
HOPE for Ariang Foundation seeks to reduce the barriers for students to receive a quality education.With this purpose in mind, it is our goal to provide every student at Ariang School with a new pair of shoes during the 2018 academic school year.
Our Plan: HOPE for Ariang will purchase high-quality shoes in Nairobi, Kenya to be able to get to school each day and will last until they outgrow them.
We are so excited to announce that our shoe initiative is completely funded as of January 2018! Thanks to many generous supporters who donated between $5 and $2,000, we will be able to provide each student with a new pair of sturdy shoes in 2018.
We are currently working on the logistics of delivering the shoes, but we look forward to sharing about the distribution!
