The town of Iten has just one mixed secondary school. Let’s not talk about private schools in a community that has around 60% unemployment and most people scraping a living as subsistence farmers… until now!
Shoe4Africa has committed to building the new Shoe4Africa Kamariny Secondary school and we are meters away from the world famous dirt track where nearly all of the Kenyan legends have (and are) training. David Rudisha, Ezekiel Kemboi, Mary Keitany, Lornah, Florence, and Edna Kiplagat (non related), Asbel Kiprop, Richard Chelimo, Ismael Kirui, Stephen Cherono, Christopher Kosgei, Henry Rono, Ibrahim Hussein, Wilson Kipketer… we could bubbling out names for days… even Mo Farah! It will truly be the new running school of Kenya!
