The film makers who both originally hail from Botswana but now reside in South Africa travelled all the way to the town of Newcastle in Kwa-Zulu Natal in the efforts to distribute school shoes to the pupils of Livangeli Primary School.
Learners received a brand new pair of Smart Steps schools as part of the project.
Connie Ferguson was asked why she had decided to take part in this initiative and this is what she had to say:
"I’m always keen to get involved in any initiative that makes a positive difference in people’s lives. I have experienced first-hand how something as important and necessary as school shoes can be a luxury when you can’t afford basic living requirements. As a child in standard 3, my brand new shoes were stolen while we were cleaning our classroom. I had to wear my small old shoes for the better part of that year as my parents couldn’t afford to get another new pair. Everything was budgeted to the last cent. So I know that feeling that these children are going to have when they receive their school shoes. I can’t wait to see the looks on their faces."
The Ferguson's ended off their visit by sharing some encouraging words to the pupils and teachers of Livangeli Primary School.
Here's what they had to say.
"Our advice to young fans is to know that they are masters of their own destiny. God listens to prayer and sees ones’ heart. Your current situation does not define who you are and who you are meant to be, don’t be afraid to dream big and work very hard towards making those dreams reality."
Shout out to Mr & Mrs Ferguson for always being a great source of inspiration.
