At the Rethaka Foundation we share our overall mission with the Rethaka Group – to be invested in Resourcing Africa's Future. This mission is the guiding star for everything we do and inspires our work in low income communities to ensure access to education by children, the empowerment of women through skills development and the sustainability of the environment. We work as a catalysts, sharing knowledge, innovating, leading by example to do our part in the development of the African continent.
We believe in doing more with less which is why the Rethaka Group covers our operational costs, so 100% of what is gifted to us by our Giving partners funds our initiatives.
HOW WE DO IT
Our launch initiative is based on the radical innovation known as the Repurpose Schoolbag: which is a solar-powered schoolbag that doubles as a light to study at night. We up-skill and partner with women in low-income communities to manufacture our bags which are then gifted to children who are on a mission to lift themselves out of poverty through education.
WHO WE DO IT WITH
To do successfully distribute our Repurpose Schoolbags to schools that need them the most, we partner with our community of purpose-driven and generous individuals and corporates who we call our “Giving Partners”.
