The project "Bhutanese kids on their toes" gives 200 kids living all over Bhutan the chance to actively participate in physical education and sports in school. It is part of the national "Athletics at school project", which places its focus on the building blocks of track and field (sprinting, long distance running, jumping and throwing). The children's parents cannot afford anything like outdoor and athletic clothes. Some of the schools are located 4000m above sea level.
 
By participating in various physical activities the kids will hopefully develop a strong sense of character and self-confidence, learn to set and achieve goals and grasp the concept of winning and losing. It is all about igniting the team spirit, so they grow up side-by-side and lead a healthy life. Their immune system will be strengthened and their dexterity will be encouraged, while the kids compete in fun activities. In Bhutan sports should become a significant aid in drug prevention.
 
KENIAL e.V would like to directly support these 200 kids directly with outdoor clothes and sports clothes. The list of the missing gear seems endless: from warm jackets, shoes, t-shirts to hats, socks, shorts, backpacks, drinking bottles and even towels. Bringing the equipment directly and personally to the children is one of the main principles of the club.
