Rafiki sale at Rockbridge church Saturday

By  | 

ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY (WDBJ7) There’s a unique opportunity to get African arts and crafts this weekend near Lexington.

Grace Presbyterian church, just outside town, is having a Rafiki sale to support the Rafiki Widows program. They will offer arts and crafts made by widows in 10 of Africa’s poorest countries.

“Rafiki, by supporting them, by purchasing the products and reselling them in the US – and by the way, they get 100 percent of the profits – it’s just a real opportunity for them to, maybe not be financially secure, but to really raise their standard of living,” explains Jackie Coburn, who helps with the sale.

The sale is Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm at Grace Presbyterian.
