K4K vision is to ensure that every school aged inner city youth has adequate footwear in order to boost self-confidence. We see a world where inner city youth are thriving, happy, have high self-confidence, and lead a successful life.
History of K4K
Kicks 4 Kids is a grassroots organization that sprung into action when a teacher wanted to fulfill a necessity of her classroom. In spring of 2011, the teacher noticed that her students did not have one decent pair of shoes and were still wearing their worn out boots. When she asked her students they shared that their families could not afford to buy them new shoes. Springing into action she organized a fundraiser asking friends and family to come and make monetary donations thus Kicks 4 Kids was born. Since 2011, K4K has supplied over 250 pairs of sneakers to students in need.
