The first month of sales for the incredible ECO TAN hand cream.. actually, it was only THREE WEEKS has blown us away!! Eco by Sonya Driver were able to donate $16,457.19 into our account at the end of November for sales made for 3 (THREE!!!) weeks in November. This money has been a life saver
We started our Christmas Day early in the morning where we walked around our community with our girls and our manager Eric and we gave food out to our poorest community members. Our children showed such kindness along with our manager Eric. We believe in doing our best to take care of our community
What a wonderful Christmas we were able to celebrate this year at Rafiki Mwema. There are so many of you who have been involved with this process.. from sending gifts to Sarah or Anne Marie to bring over for presents or donating towards our Christmas Party and staff bonuses. We enjoyed the
Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are lost for words (very unlike us) after the Kings & Queens of Rafiki documentary premiere in Lennox last weekend. We can't thank you enough for coming along and showing your support - it means the absolute world to us and the children at Rafiki Mwema. We
WOW! What a beautiful community you are Newcastle. We are honestly so humbled by your support and cant thank you enough for being a part of this event. There has been so much wonderful feedback and we are so glad that you enjoyed yourselves and connected with fellow Queens all while supporting Rafiki Mwema.
After Eco by Sonya Driver x Eco Tan's Glory Oil campaign earlier in the year where they raised $100,000 in just 5 days after Celeste Barber, and ambassador for Rafiki Mwema reached out to Sonya, a glorious plan was put in place to provide a long term solution to help Rafiki Mwema. So the idea
So you all went above and beyond……. AGAIN We are so thrilled with the money raised by Constance andthe Queen Village.

Warning, graphic content and I’m very well aware that a large percentage of you have suffered and are dealing with your own PTSD as a result. This however is Elizabeth. Her “mother” facilitated her prostitution from the age of 2 years old for 10 years. During that time she was brutally raped. She had knives
🎄CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR OUR KIDS🎄 I am often approached about people wanting to send our children things for Christmas. Normally I decline as we have no way to get the items to Kenya.. BUT this year myself (Sarah) and Anne Marie are travelling to Kenya at the beginning of December. We would like to give
If you REALLY know me then you will probably laugh when you hear someone call me inspirational. I've been called a lot of things in my life but I find this one the most depressing. Unless of course you can tell me what I have inspired you to do. Rafiki Mwema have recently welcomed 3
Many months ago we had a grant approved from Association Femmes d'Europe - FdE to build a greenhouse for our farm and to purchase some dairy cows. We had many stops and starts (This is Africa) but we are finally up and running! the very exciting news is we are producing enough produce for all of our
Where to start? What a weekend! Earlier this year I did a talk at an event for She The Change 3 wonderful ladies who came along to this event listened to what I said about Rafiki.. they listened to me talk and also took note of my dislike for the sentence 'You're such an inspiration' 🙄 (without a
At last. THE day had arrived. It was the opening of our Kings Castle. It was unbelievable that in a few short hours ALL our boys and girls would live together at Doyle Farm. There’s not a day goes by that we are not eternally grateful to Noel & Kate Doyle for buying the farm and
Can you imagine the tension, the excitement the disbelief at Rafiki Mwema that Constance and her family were on their way! Walking into the big girls house with Constance when she arrived was simply eclectic. The love that she had simply poured out of her very being. The girls, all teenagers, simply calmed in
There was so much excitement in our houses about the opening of the King’s Castle. It had been a LONG time coming, with so many hidden expenses we thought it would never happen. Sarah, Anne-Marie and Natasha had arrived in Kenya ready to celebrate the big day. We thought we were the VIP’s but
It’s not so long since one of our saddest of goodbyes Constance Hall, Denzy and their beautiful family and friends that I can even begin to process just what that trip meant to all of us It’s so well known that Constance raised phenomenal amounts of money to build our Queens Castle and then our
Trust is such a common word. I trust you’ve had a good day; I trust you with my life; trust me I won’t let you down. Five letters that are designed to let someone know you are there for them; that you’ve got their back. That you can do the right thing. How do we
What a beautiful good news week. Our amazing supporter and all round lovely person, Constance Hall, has delivered the world a beautiful baby boy. Constance and Denim named him Raja. A perfect name for a perfect little human being. His wonderful name means King in Hindi. We are a family of Kings and Queens and
What happens when two wild brilliant minds get together? They use their powers for GOOD! When our amazing ambassador Celeste Barber reached out to Sonya Driver, founder of Eco Tan, to ask for help to raise much needed funds for us, Sonya jumped into action and within days a glorious plan was in place.
I was asked today about how one of our older boys is doing and I had to pause for a moment. Could I imagine walking a day in his shoes? This young man has endured a life of torture pain and fear and just managed to come to us before he technically became an adult.
