WHATS NEW .....

12th Annual Golf Tournament

We have just received word that the

12th Annual SOCKS Golf tournament is a GO!

There are obviously changes due to Covid-19 but

a great day of golf remains unchanged.

Your support to help the even

more vulnerable in Kenya at this time is

so appreciated.

ASANTE SANA

For the first time in SOCKS’ history we did a flat out plea for donations

to try and help the many friends in Kenya who have been suffering so much because of

consequences from the Covid – 19 pandemic.

Our amazing supporters rallied to the call and we at SOCKS are overwhelmed with the

outpouring of generosity and kindness.

On behalf of all the beautiful souls you have helped  –  ASANTE SANA

 

An unprecedented plea

SOCKS Canada hopes that all our wonderful supporters and followers are faring well during the

continually changing times that is now our world.

As Covid-19 continues to spread, our friends in Kenya continue to struggle.

Please read the letter below.

 

 

HELPING DURING COVID – 19

                     Although there are many people here at home who are struggling with great difficulties during this crazy time, in Kenya,                                            daily problems become even more dire during a world changing event such as this.

Because of the unwavering support of so many wonderful people here at home, SOCKS CANADA has been able to help above and beyond our usual donations to get food to people  with whom we have formed partnerships and friendships.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annual Roast Beef Dinner and Edible Auction

 

CANCELLED

It’s that time of year again.

Come join us and enjoy a delicious Roast Beef dinner.

Be ready to bid on those even more delicious Edibles.

A wonderful evening to share and all profits go to help children and seniors in Kenya.

Contributions to our Edible Auction would be gratefully accepted.

 

Thanks for your support

We received a couple of lovely letters from two young Kenyans

who’s education is financed by SOCKS Canada on behalf of our supporters.

Brenda is so grateful for the opportunity to continue her education.

Roman, affectionately known as Professor, has just completed his ‘coming of age’ rite.

Thanks to the kindness of those who contribute to SOCKS Canada we are able to finance the

education of many Kenyan children.

Asante Sana.

 

 

 

 

It’s that time of year again.

 

SOCKS supports artisans in the village of Tabaka Kenya.  This area holds the richest

quarry of Kenyan soapstone and the entire village is the home of artists who create soapstone

pieces which are sold around the entire country and beyond.

The stone is dug from the local quarry.  Each fragment is designed, carved, washed, painted and

polished by locals.  All works are handmade and one of a kind.

SOCKS is honoured and pleased to have nurtured a partnership with these amazing people.

They have made incredible pieces upon our request.  These works of art are the focus of our bazaar and craft show sales this year.

Christmas pieces are especially featured.  Come on out and consider buying a unique Christmas gift which not only helps support

people in Tabaka but also enables SOCKS to send aid to children  in Kenya.

See below to find where we will be selling our wares.

Asante Sana

 

 

 

 

Helping over the holidays

Our family in Nakuru’s Mission in Action were very busy over the holidays helping SOCKS follow through with extra gifts of food and water which were a result of a special fundraising from our 10th annual Golf Tournament.

Thanks as always to our amazing supporters.

November bazaars

November is always a busy time for SOCKS selling fair trade Kenyan goods which we have collected in our travels.  We are very proud and pleased to have established some close working relationships with artisans in Kisii and Kibera.

Here’s our schedule.
