Barefoot Challenge

Next time you’re stuck in traffic on your daily commute, imagine walking 10 miles to work and 10 miles back again every day, across stony ground in 100-degree heat. No air con; no comfy seat; no shade. Now imagine doing this barefoot.

This is what life is like for the children of rural Burkina Faso.

And this is why Astute has taken Giving Africa’sBarefoot Challenge – we asked our staff to go barefoot for one day to experience a fraction of daily life in Burkina Faso, and raised over £300 to provide education for these youngsters to give them the best possible opportunities in life!

If you would like to take the Barefoot Challenge, visit or text BAREFOOT to 70660 to donate £5.
