NPO The Future 500 is a 'business network for the green economy' established in the USA in 1995. The Future 500 Kyushu branch assists international aid activities through a number of projects, including the collection of athletic shoes no longer needed by school children after graduation that are then sent to developing countries. This week Dr. Liz Odera, GSA Kenya Team Captain and head of the Sadili Oval Sports Club announced the arrival of hundreds of pairs of sneakers to the Sadili Oval to assist their grassroots sport and environment activities. Explaining the organization's philosophy for developing the program, Aoyagi-san of The Future 500 Kyushu says, "it's not just about sending shoes or clothes, but also about raising awareness among children about the importance of looking after what we have."
Many thanks to Future 500 for their help.
