GEORGE NEWS - Kaalvoet Mzansi founder, Anele Ngoyo, encourages people to keep their eyes open for the Kaalvoet Mzansi trolley at Pick n Pay in Courtney Street and donate generously towards their goal.
With less than a month to go, Kaalvoet Mzansi is determined to collect 400 pairs of shoes for underprivileged learners before their official handout date on 31 July.
"With help from George residents we can fill it up with shoes. It's possible," said Ngoyo.
According to Ngoyo, another Kaalvoet Mzansi shoe trolley will soon be stationed at the Garden Route Mall to increase visibility and donations.
Beneficiaries of the shoes will be children between the ages of six and 13. Their shoe sizes range from 10 to six. "When the community stands together to fight poverty, it loses its power over our children who often harbour a false impression that it is fine to quit school. Let's stand together and fight this mindset by giving them a valid reason to stay in school. School shapes your future for the better, and if you stop going to school, your future is doomed," he says.
Ngoyo thanks everyone who has contributed and donated shoes thus far. People who want to donate to this initiative can contact Ngoyo on 062 894 4744 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
