Good shoes are vital for a comfortable journey towards education! TOMS, a footwear manufacturer based in the USA, will place brand new shoes on the feet of 1 lakh schoolchildren in Lucknow this academic year, in partnership with Akshaya Patra. On July 30, 2016, students of R.A. Bazar Primary School in Lucknow received a pair of these shoes as part of this initiative.
