School is in … for shoes

Jul 18, 2012

School is out for many children, including those in the Dominican Republic.

That didn’t keep Amway Independent Business Owners and employees from gathering children together at school to distribute much needed shoes.


Earlier this month, an Amway team visited Batey 16 in La Romana to deliver shoes to the children who attend school there. Batey 16 is made up of very poor families who do not have the financial resources to meet some basic needs of their kids.


Amway Dominican Republic regularly helps families through the Amway One by One campaign, including the provision of education, toys and clothing.

The children in Batey 16 had a reason to attend school … and were now equipped to run home.
