WHATS NEW .....
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.
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.
Trying something new this year.
A Roast Beef dinner for your enjoyment

Hope you can join us.
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 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.
When in Kenya this past summer, our team met a lovely young girl named Brenda who proudly posed for a photo in her school uniform.
Upon arriving home, we found out that Brenda’s mother was unable to continue paying school fees for her daughter. Brenda was devastated.
What a wonderful opportunity for SOCKS to help one specific young person with one specific issue – Education!
SOCKS sent money to help Brenda continue with her schooling and she responded with a beautifully written thank you letter.
Thanks to all of our supporters yet again for allowing SOCKS to help.
It’s that time again. Our 10th Annual Golf tournament. 10 Years!
Hope you can join us and thank you for your past support and participation.
SOCKS members love to repeat the stories of the people and places in Kenya that we so adore as often as people will listen but we are doing the telling.
Below is a beautiful letter written by a wonderful young woman at JOYLAND.
We wanted to share her voice.
Our fearless team has returned from an inspiring and incredibly productive trip to Kenya. There will be more news soon to follow with details that can be found in our Galleries
Just a preview on the type of wonderful experiences that were made possible because of our wonderfully kind supporters.
JOYLAND Special School for the Physically challenged, in Kisumu, receives ongoing support from SOCKS. Generous donations allowed our team to give extra funds for much needed equipment.
Thank you for the opportunity to help so many who have so little.
SOCKS continues to be out and about in the communities around Nakuru.
A visit to drop off needed supplies to Mr. Langat.
Paul gets a great hug and the team is invited into the home. Amazing times.
