Minnesota Students and SOS Africa Supply School Shoes for Entire Tereo Mission School

02 Dec 2013

You may remember the article we published earlier this year about a very exciting ‘No Shoes Day’ event hosted by students from North Branch Area Middle School in Minnesota, USA. This week we had the pleasure of distributing the new shoes bought with the funds raised among all of the underprivileged children attending Tereo Mission School in the Heldberg Basin. This particular school is a lifeline for street children from the surrounding disadvantaged communities; a large proportion of which attend school barefooted despite having to walk many miles every day across dangerous terrain. Thanks to this initiative, as of this week all of these children will be able to attend school proudly wearing their new shoes…

We would like say a big thank you to the staff and students from North Branch Area Middle School in Minnesota for making this possible!
