Who are they?
Sonya Driver was introduced to Rafiki Mwema by our fabulous ambassador Celeste Barber. Sonya is the powerhouse behind Eco Tan.
From the moment we were introduced to Sonya she has been a whirlwind of love and energy and so focused on raising funds and awareness for our projects.
She pulled together the ‘Glory Oil’ campaign in the matter of DAYS and within 1.5 WEEKS of first speaking to Sonya she had raised $100,000 for Rafiki Mwema.
She personally donated 2,000 bottle of Glory Oil to the cause and sold them with 100% of all funds coming to us. She promoted it day in and day out and I am sure she slept about 6 hours over the week until she had reached her goal. She does not stop there.. She continues to advocate for Rafiki Mwema by raising awareness for the work we do. What a miracle it was to have Sonya cross our paths. We have not only found a very generous sponsor but a beautiful new family member for life.
How will their funds make change?
The funds raised by the Glory Oil campaign will be going towards the running of all of our houses. We still have a shortfall every month and Sonya wanted to take the stress off us searching and campaigning for funds come month end.. This $100,000 has allowed us to pay over due bills, get our cards repaired and pay for things we have been unable to get due to lack of funds. It will keep us up and running for many months to come and we are so grateful to everyone involved!
Why do they choose to help Rafiki Mwema?
There are 2 reasons I choose to support Rafiki Mwema.
1. This is my calling. Every cell in my body cry’s out “ how can I help “ to those that are the most harmed yet the most precious. Nothing is more important than lifting up our children.
2. I saw the love and burden in Sarah and Ann – Marie and wanted to help them on their mission with Rafkiki Mwema.
We can all do something.
