In order to prepare for our own TOMS shoe distribution; Challenging Heights programs team took a trip to Gomoa Ekroful in the Central region of Ghana on invite by Bright Generation Community Foundation, a TOMS Giving Partner.
Teachers from diverse schools gathered with their students at a local school to receive a new pair of TOMS Shoes. The shoes were distributed to the different teachers who later dispersed the shoes amongst the children. We were happy to provide a helping hand and to see a distribution in action.
As the children grow, TOMS plans to continue sending shoes, and Challenging Heights will act as a distributor in seven different communities. We are keen to work with local schools and child protection services to reach the most vulnerable children.
Through this experience we are now better suited to take on our own distribution. Our first shipment will come with a large number of new shoes and we are excited to tackle the challenge. We are looking forward to see the local children wearing TOMS Shoes on their daily commutes to school.
