The season of Lent begins on February 26th and we as a Catholic school community will be participating in various initiatives to encourage the students to pray, fast, and give to those in need. This year, one of the Lenten initiatives run by the Me to WE student ambassadors is the sale of Rafiki Bracelets to support communities in need in both Kenya and Haiti.
WE are Rafikis Campaign – WE are Rafikis is a WE School fundraising campaign that helps empower artisans in developing communities in Kenya to take charge of their futures.
Every Rafiki Bracelet is handmade, helping the women who make them earn a sustainable income. Half the proceeds from every Rafiki bracelet you buy goes towards supporting the artisans in the WE Villages in Kenya and the other half will go towards supporting the Opportunity Pillar of Impact in Haiti.
HOW TO ORDER RAFIKI BRACELETS:
- Go to the WE are Rafikis website to see the different Rafiki bracelets that are available for ordering. https://wearerafikis.com/
- Complete the order form that was sent home with your child’s name and description of the bracelet you wish to order.
- Bring the money and completed order form to school. Rafiki bracelet sales will take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
- The WE are Rafikis Campaign will run from February 10th to
March 6th. EXTENDED TO MARCH 13!
Thank you for supporting St. Luke students in their efforts to make an impact on the lives of those in need, both near and far.
