We are happy to say that through the help of some good people in Australia and Dunlop we received 19 pairs of ‘volleys’ two weeks ago. The shoes have made a big difference and it was super cool to see some of our ‘flip-flop’ skaters make the transition to canvas and laces. All the kids were stoked.
Special thanks go to those in Australia that made it happen; Dunlop, Axel Moline, and Emily Pero. Also a big thank you to The Real Uganda, a local NGO which was good enough to receive the goods on our behalf. The directors of The Real Uganda have been a serious source of support and advice for us here. Check them out at http://www.therealuganda.com
