WE Are Rafikis

Fundraising that gives back!

Women’s Empowerment + Rafikis = Change

In Swahili, Rafiki means friend. By joining the WE Are Rafikis campaign, you can fundraise—and shop!—to make a life-changing impact in the lives of others. For every $10 Rafiki Bracelet you buy and sell, $5 will go directly toward your school’s WE Villages fundraising project. Using traditional art forms, each handcrafted Rafiki bracelet empowers female artisans by enabling them to earn a fair wage for their work. For these Kenyan artisans, women’s empowerment means taking charge of their future—and they’re doing just that.
By signing up, learning and spreading awareness about the issues you’re fundraising for, you’re helping women in developing communities earn money to invest in their futures and the futures of generations of girls to come.
