Let's break the cycle of abuse together
How can I help Rafiki?
Sponsor a child at Rafiki
Sponsorship is $50AUD per month and this support is, quite literally, life-changing. Your valued donation will assist us in supporting ALL of our children with all expenses across our entire charity. If you are an Australian resident, your donation can be tax deductible. By becoming a sponsor, you will be making a lifetime difference to some of the most vulnerable children.
Fundraise for Rafiki
There are so many ways to raise money for Rafiki Mwema and even the smallest contribution can help make a big difference. There are countless small fund raising projects you can host at your workplace, local school or within a social group and they are great fun. We are so blessed to have many volunteers that fundraise and the money they raise helps us to continue to do the critical work we do in supporting traumatised children.
Attend a Rafiki Event
Every year, we host a gala in Australia and in 2020, we are hosting TWO! We also host trauma-informed training delivered by Anne-Marie in various locations and there are some additional boutique events on our calendar that we would love you and your to join us at
Letters for my for Rafiki
You can write to the children of Rafiki Mwema. We all know the joy upon receiving a handwritten letter! It is absolutely priceless. The staff at Rafiki Mwema will help the children read the letters and any stickers, craft items etc will be shared around. While they speak the local language, Swahili they are also learning English at the house and this program will be an educational tool. Who would have thought so much goodness could come from writing a letter!!
Shop or sell in our online store
Our online store has something for everyone with 100% profits going to Rafiki. From Rafiki branded merchandise to soft toys made by local Kenyan women, beautiful artwork, books & so much more. We are always seeking wholesale products, relevant to Rafiki Mwema, things such as books about empowering women, jewelry that tells a story, or any items that fit with the general theme of hope and love that Rafiki Mwema endeavours to share.
Support the work in the community
Working in Kenya, we are always mindful that we may have different cultural experiences and understanding. We always try and work alongside, to enhance the connection and understanding of children and families in the community. We work in our local communities, with the local authorities, schools, with the families of our children to help them to understand and connect to their children.
Sending second hand goods to Rafiki?
Many people offer clothes etc they would like to send to the Kenya but this is not possible for us to get the items to Kenya at this stage unless we take it ourselves. Mail in unreliable and often doesn't arrive. We suggest having a garage sale or similar and then donating the proceeds to Rafiki? We understand this take a lot of effort so if this is not something you can do, we have wonderful friends in Australia over at RizeUp and they welcome items.
Raising Awareness for Rafiki
Raising awareness is so vital to our sustainability. We understand some people don’t have the financial means for sponsorship or a regular donation or the time to fundraise but sharing/liking a social media post or having flyers on your counter or desk at work is an easy way to get the word out about Rafiki Mwema and all that we do.
