SHOES – RUNNING INTO THE FUTURE
Ghana strongly supports educating their children and providing them with the tools needed to be successful. Our goal is to help with shoes. Many students walk long distances to school, many don’t have money to buy shoes or often wear shoes that are too small for their feet. We want to ensure they have the proper shoes to help them reach their educational goals in comfort. Our Partners have made this dream a reality: Naptapestry (Lady Gray & Precious McGill), Cool Kids Camp Mr. & Mrs. Wallace, Mr. LM Corley and a host of supporters around the USA.
