Stepping Forward

Ever wondered what a thousand pairs of shoes might look like?

Our Karen team has just found out. This month KHT has received a generous donation of 1000 shoes and socks to distribute to schools across Mae Hong Son.

Tesco Lotus have stepped forward and made the donation as part of their ‘Take Kids to School Campaign’. A campaign which each year sees customers putting their best foot forward by making donations to help fund shoes for underprivileged children.

Alongside this Tesco will be supporting eight Karen scholarship students, giving them the chance to complete  life changing university degrees.

The remoteness and poverty of the Mae Hong Son region means that only one in four Karen children have the opportunity to complete their secondary education and schools are often under resourced. For over 15 years KHT has been working in the area of education, across a diverse array of projects. Our aim is to work with the Karen to help build futures of opportunity. This is all made possible through the generosity of our supporters. To find out more about these visit our  project pages

Over the next month we will be bringing you updates on the schools who will be stepping out in their brand new shoes so watch this space.
