The handover of 600 pairs of school shoes to scholars attending Marapong Primary School in Dennilton took place on Friday the 5th of March 2021.
Barefoot No More school shoes are unique, locally manufactured school shoes which are durable and easy to maintain, do not require shoe polish, and can stretch to accommodate growing feet. Each pair of school shoes is donated in a book bag together with a stationery set.
“This project makes a big difference in my community. There is high unemployment and a large number of families depend on social grants. Some of the children don’t have school shoes so you can imagine how they feel getting a brand-new pair of school shoes.” says Hitler Makhumisane, Moutse Mall Centre Manager.
Moutse Mall has donated 6 744 pairs of school shoes to scholars in the Dennilton community since 2016.
