Vienna, Hayleigh and Sarah Scott want 1,200 children in the Missions of Hope Joska schools in Nairobi, Kenya, to each have a pair of new shoes and socks, but they need a little help to make it happen.
Vienna, 13, Hayleigh, 13, Sarah, 10, their younger brother A.J., and their parents, Andrew and Rachel, attend Crossway Christian Church in Nashua, New Hampshire. They have been supporters of the Hope Partnership in Kenya since 2009. The family has planned a mission trip to visit Missions of Hope in the spring of 2013, so they are learning about the ministry at home and at church. After seeing pictures of children who are barefoot or wearing plastic soda bottles as shoes, the girls launched “Sole to Soul,” a project to raise money for new shoes.
The girls originally thought they would need about $10,000, but then found out that there are a LOT more kids at Joska than they realized. They were a little overwhelmed when they realized they will need to raise about $30,000 to put new shoes on every student, but are “praying that God will show up and help us get it done!”
The girls began their fund-raising efforts by going door-to-door in their town and raised nearly $1,300 in about 15 hours of work. They are planning some additional fundraisers in their hometown but want to encourage people around the world to help, too.
You can help the Scott girls meet their goal of raising $30,000 to provide shoes for 1,200 children from the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, with your donation to the “Sole to Soul” project.
