Our challenge is to listen and work with communities to better lives focusing on Health & Education.

Four public schools built and gifted to Kenya, and a public dairy college... plus handing out AIDS Awareness kits to schools, working with preventative health lessons, sponsoring students, donating Nooks/laptops to distribute greater knowledge. Building toilets and classrooms in other schools. Bringing sports and educational equipment to schools that need it. Holding peace sports days for schools and more
WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT AND PEACE
Women’s empowerment soon followed, if you go to Shoe4Africa races you will see they are somewhat different from other Kenyan sporting events. Our Shoe4Africa races have developed a lot of local talent & given away shoes/T shirts, cash & more. We continue with yearly events.
It began, inadvertently with health, a covered toe shoe can easily prevent hookworm. Learning the horrors of malaria we began awareness classes to help prevent the spread of that disease, but our main health initiative must be giving East Africa it's first ever public teaching children's hospital (105-bed). A healthy Africa is one that will be self-reliant and a strong foothold for the future generation of positive change.
