Children and young people are provided with a high-quality pair of shoes. In addition to the fact that good shoes are important for the growth of the body, a new pair of shoes also gives self-confidence and this gesture shows that the children matter, even when they live in poverty. We go door-to-door to make notes about the kids that need a pair of decent shoes. When we collect all the information we set a date where the kids can claim and fit their pair of shoes.
Children that are living in self improved houses are provided with a sleeping bag. The houses consist mainly of wood and plastic and are insufficiently resistant to the cold and rain during the rainy season. With the sleeping bags we contribute to a little bit of comfort and a better night's sleep, wich is one of the most important aspects of their basic needs.
