Status Completed – January 2015
Challenge Kids walk approximately 3 km (~1.86 miles) every day, barefoot, to get to school. This becomes particularly difficult and painful in the summer months when the temperature is often as high as 115 F, and sometimes even higher.
Solution Karma Junction distributed 85 pairs of footwear to ease the kids’ commute. We also distributed 200 umbrellas so that the kids would have some form of rain protection in the monsoon months.
Costs $483.00 = Rupees 28,980
