Helsinki City Run and LiiKe Sports & Development collect used sneakers and running shoes during HCR 2016. The shoes are donated to Tanzanian girl schools in Mtwara-Mikindan region.
The girls in the chosen schools have had many obstacles to continue their studies. Early marriages and the poverty of the families have led to many school dropouts. LiiKe supports eight middle schools by organizing seminars relating to health education, by arranging village meetings and by supporting the school sport done by girls.
