THE STORY:

Hello all, The Ashinaga Foundation, based out of Tokyo, is an incredible organization that provides educational and emotional support to orphans all over the world. I have been lucky enough to work with the Rainbow House in Nansana, Uganda, which houses the Terakoya School. Two years ago I was invited to join my choir director and assist her as she taught these kids how to sing. They amazed me with their performance talent in singing and dancing as well as their incredible dedication to their education. It is the law in Uganda that every child that goes to school must go in a pair of black closed toed shoes. However, good pairs of these shoes are not always affordable. When I asked the kids what they wanted us to send them the overwhelming response was shoes. I saw for myself when students went missing from school simply because their shoes were broken. Neither these amazing students nor I want to see this happen. I have immense faith that we can raise the money (and maybe more) to send to Ashinaga Uganda, who will ensure that good quality shoes lasting at least three years will get to the students in their respective sizes. It's such a simple solution to ensure that the life-changing opportunity of education remains open to them. So please consider donating what you can. EVERY little bit helps. And please share this with any and all of your friends!! Check out Ashinaga's website as well: http://www.ashinaga.org/en/ Thank you so much for visiting this project, and THANK YOU in advance for your contributions. I can't wait to see where this community can take these students. Peace, Malinda
