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.


A grateful Brenda

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.
