Each day early morning when you see children or meet them going to school barefooted, others with sandals, slippers and crocks because they don’t have or their parents, guardians or care givers could not afford a pair of school shoes. This makes them feel awkward and not being motivated to study. Others do drop out of school as a result of not having a school shoes. Most of the children from PUT A SMILE ON A CHILD’S FACE are victims of this and this has made me saw the need to help at least over 40 children to get a pair of school shoes that can last for more than two years or more. So it is a journey that I can’t walk alone so I am inviting you to walk with us in this journey.
I was ones a victim of going to school barefooted. I didn’t know or had any kind of school from my preschool I reached standard 5. I thank God I was able to get sponsorship that sponsored my education till I finished Secondary school. That was the first time I had a school shoe. Seeing these beautiful children with so much potential and determination to study and not being able to get education all because of not having school shoes breaks my heart. I felt all they go through and thought of a way to help or support these children. I was motivated after sharing this with some of my friends David, Howell and Paul. We decided to seek for a way to help or support these children by getting them school shoes at least to motivate them as they seek to acquire knowledge. PASOCFA (PUT A SMILE ON A CHILD’S FACE) Is an organization, not yet registered still in the process to be a registered Ngo that aims at offering bibles studies for the children and youths, Helping the poor children to get better education through sponsorship.
