Youth Day - School Shoes

Chief Jerry Nkosi High School

Youth Day - School Shoes



Location: Mpumalanga
The Story
The Journey
A pair of school shoes ensures that a learner can focus on their education without the distraction of discomfort. Proper school shoes enhance concentration and effective learning, significantly impacting a student's ability to succeed. With the right pair of shoes, students can attend school with confidence.

According to SA Good News, a number of children miss school because the journey is too painful to endure without proper school shoes. For many, the daily commute involves long walks, which can be unbearable without proper shoes. Wearing inadequate shoes can lead to serious health issues, including ingrown toenails, back and neck pain, and spinal misalignments. Not to mention reduced academic performance.

Beyond physical health, lacking school shoes affects a child's sense of dignity and belonging. A complete school uniform, including proper shoes, is a source of pride and confidence for learners. It allows them to feel like they are part of a community, equal to their peers. Without this, children may feel embarrassed or ashamed, which can further impact their academic performance and social interactions.

The Star Foundation has restored the dignity of the learners of Chief Jerry Nkosi High School by donating school shoes and socks for 140 learners.

We believe that every child deserves access to education, regardless of their socio-economic background. Many students at Chief Jerry Nkosi High School lack basic school supplies, including school shoes. These supplies are not just items; they are tools that enable children to learn, grow, and envision a brighter future.
