Melinah Lingondo, The Soft Feet Education Center
Melinah Ling’ondo manages The Soft feet Education Center, a school for 20 orphans and other vulnerable children of pre-school age. The project aims to educate kindergarten children in and around the Marachi and Sofia slums of Busia, Kenya. The goals of the Soft feet Center are centered on addressing the short-term and long-term needs of children and vulnerable adults living in conditions of severe poverty. Without Soft Feet, many of these children would have no opportunity for education, no chance to prepare for their futures.
