In many parts of Africa, having no shoes means being singled out as a street child and vulnerable to abuse. Without shoes they cannot go to school – a ridiculous state of affairs – their self esteem is lowered, they miss out on education and they suffer injuries.
Street Child Africa started up the Barefoot Friday campaign to encourage people to take a #footsie and upload it to social media, and donate £3 to go to this cause. It was with pleasure that I had the chance to be involved in this project, providing an identity and literature. If you’re reading this then please go here and lease donate the price of your over-priced coffee to a better cause.
