The journey to distributing school shoes to 20 000 children in need across South Africa has begun. The project saw Dineo Ranaka and the Krush Goodness Krew visiting Thembalihle Primary School in Soweto this week, where over 1000 learners received a brand new pair of Smart Steps school shoes as part of the project.
20 schools that received the most nominations by the public will be visited over the next few weeks by the Krush Goodness Krew, including: Connie Ferguson, Zenande Mfenyane, Rami Chuene, Lalla Hirayama, Letshego Zulu, Thembi Seete, Ayanda Thabethe, Leanne Manas, Brent “Good Things Guy” Lindeque, Shona Ferguson and Heather Hook.
According to Stats SA, approximately 70% of learners walk to school every day, many of whom walk barefoot or with damaged shoes. The #KrushGoodness project will make a sustainable difference in the lives of 20 000 learners across South Africa, giving them the confidence to conquer the world one step at a time.
