As we all know, the African child is jostling to attain the most minimal education. As such it is not always easy for their parents to fend for both their education, and other tools that will aide a successful educational drill.
See this gap, Stephanie Foundation launched Sandals for every child project in 2014. Since it emergence, the foundation has produced over 63,000 sandals for children for free. This has afforded them the opportunity to keep their feet protected as they go to school.
This project is meant to help kids who cannot afford good shoes for school and those kids who cannot afford shoes atall to go to school. It will interest you to know that so many kids go to school without shoes and that can be very dangerous because they could sustain injuries on the feet which can give tetanus entrance into the body.
Tetanus which is a serious fetal disease caused by the infection of an open wound can easily enter the body through cuts and cuts can easily occur when one walks around without shoes.
Sharp objects that are rusted and infected can be stepped on easily and this can lead to tetanus gaining access into the body. So sandals for every child is a great project aimed at encouraging kids to want to go to school. This is so because, when they remember that they have a shoe for school, they get exited and before you know it, they are getting dressed and going to school.
This project is also a means of protecting the feet from cuts.
Sandals for every child project, protects the child’s feet which in turn protects the health of the child. It’s only a healthy child that can live, acquire the needed education and become the leader of tommorow.
