Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, took some time off his busy schedule to put a few smiles on a few faces by handing out school shoes to young school children.

About 50 school children between the ages of six and 10 in Kliptown, Soweto, received brand new school shoes from the Amakhosi shot-stopper.

Khune partnered with the Kliptown Youth Programme to identify school children, whose families could not afford new shoes.

“These children are the stars of tomorrow, the next Bafana or Banyana players, the next President or doctors of this country. I felt a deep urge to reach out, not because of what I do and who I am – but because I believe that every person can make a difference no matter how small."

"If I put a smile on one child’s face today, then it means I’ve accomplished something wonderful,” said the Chiefs goalkeeper in a statement.

The 27-year-old revealed he will continue to work alongside the Kliptown Youth Programme going forward.

"This is not a once-off help and then you never see me again sort of assistance that I’m offering. I’ll continue the relationship with the Kliptown Youth Programme to identify needs and to see what else I’m able to do, to be the change, " Itu concluded.

In May last year, Khune also lend a helping hand when he donated R150 000 to an Old Age Home in his hometown of Ventersdorp.
