Women’s Empowerment + Rafikis = Change

By joining the WE Are Rafikis campaign, you can fundraise—and shop!—to make a life-changing impact in the lives of others. Using traditional art forms, each handcrafted Rafiki Bracelet empowers female artisans by enabling them to earn a fair wage for their work. By signing up, learning and spreading awareness about the issues you’re fundraising for, you’re helping women in developing communities invest in their futures and the futures of generations of girls to come.

For every $10 Rafiki Bracelet you buy and sell, $5 will go directly toward your school’s WE Villages fundraising project.


Create your own unique Rafiki Bracelet and personalize the packaging with custom stickers, like your school’s logo. Wear it to cheer on your school’s sports team or give it as a special gift for prom!


When families have access to resources that allow them to meet their basic needs, they no longer have to choose between water or food, school or medicine.


Use our resources to explore social entrepreneurship in the classroom, and how it can transform the world.
