I'm posting this photo for Friday here, because here it's Budget Traveller's Sandbox Travel Photo Thursday!
Here is Kanna. Kanna is a San Bushman boy I make custom boots for as he was one of the last survivors of Polio in Namibia. He's not just proudly wearing the boots I made him last year, but also his school uniform as at Naankuse wildlife sanctuary they're teaching all the San kids at the new Clever Cubs School built there especially so the children will get enough basic education so they can enter mainstream schools in Windhoek. There's another pair on their way to him now being delivered by Russell Frankish from Green Bushpigs Safaris, who stopped over at our home while on a New Zealand tour. We think it's great that Kanna gets an opportunity now in his life to learn at a school .Hopefully when I'm in Namibia next May I'll have the time to get to go kick a soccer ball around with Kanna and the rest of the children. Perhaps I should clarify that I made them for him and donated them. Least I could do for Naankuse.
