Peel secondary student tackles poverty one STEP at a time

Turner Fenton Secondary School student, Shekhar Kumar, has founded Shoes to End Poverty (STEP), a non-profit organization that collects and ships used footwear to children and adults in developing countries.

Primarily through social media, STEP members have collected more than 100 pairs of shoes, and aim to collect another 400 pairs and $5,000 by the end of this school year.
