August 2020, Bare Essentials

Footprints of health, hygiene, and hope. 2nd pilot of Footnote’s outreach efforts in providing essential footwear to children in deeper sections of the community.

A warm Thank You to Anthill Creations and Greensole for seamless collaboration with
Footnote (despite the stop-and-go lockdown challenges) to mark the 74th Independence Day at Gunjurpalya Government Higher Primary with the distribution of footwear to all the 161 children (78 boys and 83 girls) in the school. It’s the first pair ever owned for many of the children.

Anthill surveyed their expanding network of communities to identify children who didn’t own basic footwear. They narrowed in on one school, collected info of age and foot sizes with the Headmaster’s help. Greensole quickly matched the requirement with their inventory/production and shipment. Anthill’s team was present at the school on distribution day and brought back some pics.

Greensole, Mumbai reuses and refurbishes discarded shoes to comfortable footwear, and
distributes them to children in need. Anthill Creations, Bangalore, makes play accessible and affordable for all kids by building low-cost and sustainable playscapes using scrap tires and industrial waste. We look forward to continued collaboration with both for more proactive outcomes!
