Events are a great way of raising funds for Rafiki Thabo Foundation – we organise our own but also encourage our supporters to do so too!

We – and our supporters – have run so many amazing fundraising events over the years, including our inaugural gala dinner in 2018, the Rafiki Thabo Cook Off in 2020, the Rafiki Relay in 2021, several clothes swaps and pampering and shopping evenings, children’s activities at local fetes etc. Read more about some of our events below. We also have a dedicated events website.


Rafiki Relay for Education

Wow, what an amazing Rafiki Relay we had! More than 2,000 pairs of feet, £16,223 raised and a whopping 103,791km cycled, walked, run or swum over 6 weeks in spring 2021! We finished Cairo to Cape Town in only 6 days, so went on to conquer the coastline of Africa, the Equator and returned to Cairo before the 6 weeks were up!

Didn’t get the chance to take part? Fear not, you are welcome to download our collated milestones booklet! Explore the 33 amazing places we visited (virtually) and read about the young lives that the Rafiki Relay teams help us transform! All we ask in return is that you sign up to our mailing list! We will not bombard you, just keep you posted on our fabulous events and the impact your support will have.
