OUR VISION IS A WORLD BASED ON DIGNITY, NOT CHARITY.
Rethaka Foundation is dedicated to doing work to “Resource Africa's Future” by delivering innovative initiatives that bring to life our three focus areas in meaningful ways. Through our work, we play our part in enabling children to have access to quality education, prioritizing the empowerment of women through technical skills and ensuring that the commons that sustain us in the environment are consciously looked after.
OUR INTERNATIONAL AWARD-WINNING FLAGSHIP INITIATIVE IS CENTERED AROUND OUR INNOVATION THAT IS WIDELY KNOWN AS THE REPURPOSE SCHOOL BAG.
This is a solar-powered schoolbag that doubles as a light to study at night. Designed to offer children dignity, these schoolbags are made from a durable upcycled plastic material and are manufactured skillfully by women who come from low-income communities. Since 2014 we have been running this initiative and have successfully proven and inspired many people around the world to see how social impact can be achieved systemically across our three focus areas being the education of children, empowerment of women and the protection of our environment.
IF YOU WANT TO GO FAST, GO ALONE. IF YOU WANT TO GO FAR, GO TOGETHER.
