The �Shoes for Africa� project is near and dear to the heart of board member, Amina Cisse Muhammad, who lived with YES, Inc. founder Hajar Sall in Senegal. Her then 11-year old son, Sirri, was hospitalized upon his return to the United States in 1995 because, unbeknownst to her, he had contracted a foot-worm shortly before their departure. The doctor she took him to for treatment was alarmed by the possibility of �some strange African epidemic�. Against her wishes, he wanted to perform surgery until a specialist identified the foot ailment as one common even in America�s rural areas where children often walk and play barefoot in dirt contaminated by the feces of farm animals.

 

Grassroots efforts, integrity, and passion for the work.
