TOMS Shoes gives a new pair of shoes to disadvantaged children in the Community. This is an ongoing project where Helderberg Sunrise Rotary Club through the Giving Partner in South Africa, Sesego Cares distributes shoes to schools, crèches and other worthy organisations within our area.
For each organisation there is a Rotary Champion who assumes full responsibility for the completion of the order forms which calculate the size of shoe required according to the age and gender of the child. These order forms are sent to Sesego Cares who then dispatch the shoes under the care of the Rotary Champion to the organisation they are responsible for.
A very important function of the Rotary Champion in handing out the shoes is the taking of photographs of the shoes being handed out and also the recording of any notable anecdotes both of which are forwarded to Sesego Cares. Last Year Helderberg Sunrise Rotary club distributed shoes to almost nine thousand children in thirteen organisations in our area.
