Samford University is in Roseau, Dominica making a difference!

Samford is well-known for its academic rigor, rich history, and welcoming environment. At the heart of the school's mission is "an encouragement of ethical competency while encouraging social and civic responsibility, and service to others."  

With that in mind, Samford President Andrew Westmoreland announced last March that the university would undertake a significant goal: provide shoes to the children of an entire nation.  See the work that has been done in the  video above.
