    Reafric  is a social enterprise that cuts across several issue in areas including environment, education, gender, youth and talent empowerment. It is a recycling company that collects waste materials such as leather boards from industries, discarded fabric from tailors, used vehicle tires, leather from carpenters, and old jeans. With these materials, we make durable quality footwear that is sold both locally and abroad.

    These shoes are produced in partnership with skilled artisans and women’s groups located in the informal settlements of Kibera as a means to generate sustainable income for themselves and their families. Ten percent of the revenue generated is reinvested into the community through educational scholarships and behavior change campaigns aimed at encouraging youth to make healthy life choices especially around social issues like sexual and reproductive health, drugs and alcohol abuse, and life skills- keeping off from peer pressure and activities pertaining crime , division amongst ethnic communities, riots and destruction of public and private properties.
