Our Annual Celebration Dinner on October 19, 2017 was excellent! We had a great time sharing food and fellowship, and hearing from our speaker Jonathan Coleman, of ASSETS Lancaster, about missions and colonialism and the things we can do to invest in locally smart, grassroots solutions that honor the local people and their wisdom, as well as empower them to change their situation.
We are so grateful to everyone that came out and all of the new and renewed commitments to Rafiki Africa. Our work wouldn’t be possible without excellent partners!
Dorothy also shared about a new social enterprise opportunity for the women’s program. Lemongrass grows quite easily in Kenya, and can be used for tea. Kenyan Chai Masala is also quite easy for the women to make. Dorothy is currently doing market research in the US to learn about what the demand would be for such a product. If you’re interested in partnering with that project, you can contact Dorothy through the form under the Contact tab.
During the dinner, we also shared a video with updates from 2017, which you can view below if you missed it.
