What is it?
The Barefoot Challenge, created in 2016 by Giving Africa, has seen people all over the word doing a range of everyday, extraordinary or bizarre activities without shoes and socks to generate funds for some of the poorest children in the world.
The money raised by those who have been rebelling against their shoes and socks, goes towards giving children an environment where it is possible to learn. This includes easing overcrowding in temperatures that can hit over 40 degrees centigrade, rectifying a total lack of basic resources and improving the quality and relevance of education. We want to empower them by giving them the knowledge and support to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Can you help too?
