Speaking about her motivation, Kerry said the sight of seeing kids walk barefoot during her visit to Ghana touched her and made her think about what she can do to try and help.
“When I visit my grand aunty at the village you can see every child with no shoes on and I realized that is so dangerous.
Currently, Kerry has partnered with a nonprofit organization in the US to ensure that thousands of kids in Ghana have shoes to wear anytime they head to school.
According to Kerry her greater desire is to ensure that thousands of school kids don't walk barefoot and that hopefully, her actions will motivate others to support her cause.
