This limited edition Water Rafiki is a versatile piece of Maasai-inspired beadwork that can be worn as a bracelet, anklet or necklace. Every purchase directly impacts the lives of those around the world who don’t otherwise have access to sustainable sources of clean water. Specifically with this Water Rafiki, one chain equals one year of clean water for one person.
Many communities around the world lack access to clean water. Free The Children’s clean water projects ensure more children have access to safe sources of clean water—ridding them of waterborne illnesses and freeing them to attend school.
Each Water Rafiki Friend Chain is unique and handmade with love by Maasai mamas in Kenya. Proceeds from the $10 chain support Free The Children’s clean water programming around the world and benefit the mamas who make the chains, empowering them, their families and their communities.
Your purchase supports Free The Children’s goal of providing a sustainable source of clean water to 100,000 people.
One chain. One year. One person.
Me to We Artisans brings access to fair-trade markets and financial literacy training to more than 612 Maasai mamas in Free The Children communities. Working towards financial independence through this sustainable source of income, the women of Me to We Artisans are building a future for themselves and their families, one beaded item at a time.Learn More
One of our most celebrated ambassadors is also one of our most involved. World famous recording artist Nelly Furtado has designed the Spirit Indestructible Tank (TSI Tank) and travelled with us to Kenya. She has appeared on the We Day stage, and graced the Much Music Video Awards red carpet adorned with Me to We Artisans. Amazingly, Nelly also featured Me to We speaker Spencer West – during his courageous Mount Kilimanjaro climb – in her Spirit Indestructible lyric video.Learn More
