Handmade Products From HIV-Positive Women Provide Hope
One group of women particularly dear to the heart of Rafiki is Women of Hope in Nigeria. These outcasts from society are unemployed, homeless, and have no family support. Being HIV-positive has sentenced them to a lifetime of poverty and despair.
The Mashiah Foundation has partnered with these HIV-positive women, teaching them to sew and thus providing them a way to make a sustainable living
The Rafiki Foundation has partnered with Women of Hope and is bringing more varied and more numerous products to the U.S. With each purchase you make, you enable these ladies to feed and house their families, care for their homes, and send their children to school. All products are handmade, lending a one-of-a-kind quality to each item. Each purchase opens the offers HIV-positive women something not previously possible—a second chance.
These HIV-positive women were once ostracized, alone, and often homeless. But now, these women have hope. Hope that you can be a part of.
