A pair of shoes makes a difference in a child’s life

Children posing for a photo after receiving shoes donated by Academic Work

Academic Work sponsors orphaned girl children to attain primary and secondary school education in Livingstone district in the southern province of Zambia. Recently shoes were distributed to pupils and it was touching to see the impact a pair of shoes make on a child’s life.  Elizabeth (Response Network sponsorship coordinator) will never forget that day when she arrived at Bata shop where the children received shoes from. She started giving shoes to each individual child, as they went in she could hear their laughter and excitement as the kids were amazed by their new gifts. As she stood there, she could see the excitement in the children’s face.  It was in that moment that she realized that every pair makes a difference.

  1. I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It?s pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. You are very right, the kids loved the shoes so much! You could see the excitement on their faces as they carried the shoes home – of course looking forward to wearing them the following day at school!
