Pictured is one of the leaners from an underprivileged community who benefitted from the #oneshoeatatime project. One of the communities we serve through SU Pietermaritzburg was identified with children attending school without school shoes or with shoes that they have out-grown and some wearing their only pair of shoes they own. In addition to this they also have other needs; however we wanted to make a start and the smiles on their faces were so precious. Below is an excerpt from a letter sent by one of the schools we supported.

Dear Sir / Madam

The school governing body and the management of the Tsebong Olwasini School would like to thank Scripture Union for donating shoes to our needy learners. As a school we really appreciate that; may God shower you and your team with more blessings. Our relationship started two years back and it is becoming stronger and stronger every year.

We hope we will maintain our relationship.

To help with the project or for more information, contact Garland at 033 342 9191 or email garland@su.org.za

    Good Day

    My name is Phakiso Mokoena from the NGO called Free State Unemplloyed Youth Forum at Lindley Free State Province.

    The organisational aim is to provide information regarding awernesses, youth empowerment programs, policy making and career advice to both rural and urban youth by a way of establishing an information youth center.

    I would like to know if Scripture Union also operates in Free State and wether we qualify to get help from SU Foundation,as we operate in a very disadvantaged commonity were school kids are in a very high need of things like school uniform.

    Thank you in advance for understanding.

    Yours in development
