One of the ways you can help is to purchase something from our store. Everything shown for sale here is an original work of art made by a local artist or artisan. We purchase these works directly from the artist or artisan ourselves, bring them home with us and offer them for sale to you. All proceeds go in full to the person who created the piece you buy. Rosie’s Rafikis covers all costs of remitting the funds via Western Union to the artist. Local Kenyan craftsmen also make many other beautiful things that we hope to be able to offer in the future.¬†All works are shipped unframed with free shipping and handling anywhere in the continental US.

As a wise man once said, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” These artists need your support to help feed them and their families
