Going to School with No Shoes

school with no shoes

High in the Himalayan mountains, 24 children finally get a chance to go to school at a new Christian school that just opened for them! Their families are poor. They don't have fertile land to live on or make their living on. They struggle to feed their kids. And their kids have no uniforms, no backpacks, no school supplies, and most of them have no shoes.

The kids walk 30 to 60 minutes to get to school. And many times they get injuries to their feet along the way. National pastor RK who is working with these families in their remote Himalayan village has requested we provide school shoes for the kids to make getting their Christian education more sustainable.

To buy all 24 pairs of shoes, it costs $175.

Pastor RK also requested several other items for the kids as a way to bless them while they go to school, where they are learning from the Bible and learning to read it. The main purpose of the school is to help the children of the village learn to read and know Jesus as Lord and Savior. These gifts bring glory to God as you support the efforts of Pastor RK and the teachers.

Tuition for the school only costs the family 80 cents per month per kid. Some have trouble even affording that cost. Please consider blessing this education ministry so that kids can experience the love of Jesus as they read it from God's Word.

*To protect the security and identity of the individuals serving in this context, we have changed their names online and in some cases use photos that are representative.


Pastors here often have less than one day of training, but Sajan and Mary work to strengthen local pastors in their city and in mountainous villages.
