On our last day of term, the children were asked to leave their shoes in a box as they went home, so that they could be given to a project in Tanzania called “Forever Angels”. Forever Angels is an orphanage, where children under the age of 2years who have no one to care for them, are taken in and cared for. (The orphanage has connections with The Bethany Family.) The shoes are to be distributed in surrounding villages near the orphanage, to poor families who can’t afford them, as children aren’t allowed to go to school unless they have shoes to wear.
Our school council decided to support this cause and we were able to collect 50 pairs of shoes, both childrens’ and some adult ones too! The Forever Angels representative, Amy, was “immensely grateful” and said that they would enable many children to be able to attend school.
Thank you to all those people who gave their shoes to this very worthy cause.
