Our team has been very busy trusting God for the ongoing work at Rafiki despite coronavirus pandemic. A lot of old projects are being rehabilitated. One of our larger projects is the expansion of the pig sheds. We now have eight (8) females and within the next several months, they will start giving birth to little ones. Please consider supporting us with any amount for this pig shed expansion project. Our budget is $2,000. In God we trust.
The Rafiki family and kids have been planting flowers during the holidays among other activities to beautify their space. Reverend John Nganga thanks everyone for all of your prayers and support.
The Rafiki Bakery has seen rapid growth recently. Together with provision for enough bread for our kids, the bakery products have now gone to local market. Our products are now competing with other prominent companies in mini-stores and supermarkets. The team designed a new brand label which is attracting more consumers.
All plans are in place to have a variety of products. We are also intensifying marketing strategies to reach as many consumers as possible. This project has been completely subsidized the bread budget in our institution. Thanks to all who made this project possible.
Today was a day of celebration as the 75 kids of Rafiki Children’s Center were taken to Bata Shoes Factory to shop for late Christmas gifts from our friends, Sarah Hambley, from Columbus, OH, Rev. Marian Cavagnaro, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Rev. E. Flemister, Tampa, FL and Lauren Flemister, St. Auburn, WA. Also, in addition to a pair of shoes, every child received a pair of socks. The balance of the gifted money took care of other needs at the Center. Thank you friends for your generous gifts.
