In the early months of 2021, the #10000STRONG initiative was approached by Inkanyiso School Shoes, a social enterprise that produce school shoes for learners in need. Many learners from under-resourced schools do not have the luxury of replacing school shoes every couple of months when they outgrow their old ones. Inkanyiso School shoes give learners the gift of owning a brand-new pair of school shoes – a wonderful effort in improving the lives of these learners as most of them walk to school.

Inkanyiso School Shoes kindly donated 20 pairs of school shoes to #10000STRONG. The Affinity Group matched this donated and our generous Affinity staff raised enough funds to sponsor an additional 51 pairs. This totalled a donation of an amazing 91 pairs of shoes to our beneficiary school, Isihlangusabasha Primary!

Shoes were donated to every learner in the school who were needing a new pair in their required size. It was a wonderful and encouraging day as Nkanyiso from Inkanyiso School Shoes and some staff members from the Affinity Group spent the morning distributing the shoes and spending time with the learners.

We are so grateful to be able to care for and serve these learners in any way that we can are and are so appreciative to anyone who partners with us on this journey.
