Introducing The Carrots!

The Carrots are a group of 6 students from all different countries (Austria, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, China, Lebanon, France, Russia) who met whilst studying and share a common interest in humanitarian projects and the work of charities.

We put our heads together, shared ideas and asked some questions:

- Who would donate funds to a simple association?
- No one !

Then we thought:

- What about giving our time and knowledge to those who need it the most ?

And thatís when it became obvious for us, that the one we wanted to help was Rafi & Friends.
We would be Rafiís carrots and help Rafi expand his story and raise awareness in the UK and all around the world...

We are so excited to welcome The Carrots as part of the team, and we look forward to updating you on news of events coming up!

British Red Cross Awareness Weekend

'A truly wonderful weekend'

Rafi and Pauline were invited to the beautiful Island of Tresco as guests of Lucy and Robert Dorrien-Smith as part of the Red Cross Awareness Weekend.

Rafi and Pauline visited the children of the Tresco and Bryher School to host a Hopes & Dreams workshop, conducted by the Head Teacher Ms Gates and teacher Mr Wilson, with the help of Pauline Spearpoint and Lucy Dorrien-Smith.

rafi+friends gave each child their own Rafi Rabbit nightlight and story book to take home to share with their friends and family.

The warm and welcoming people of Tresco made this an especially memorable trip. We can't wait to return to Tresco!

Photographs of the children from Tresco Bryher School with their brilliant drawings from the Hopes & Dreams Workshop and the Hopes & Dreams Tree, made for us by Abbey Garden Curator Mike Nelhams - what an honour!

A host of events took place at the beautiful Abbey Garden over the weekend. Have a look at our facebook page to see more of the action @rafiandfriends

Itís been a busy start to the year and we are delighted to announce that rafi+friends is now officially a charitable fund under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund, charity no. 1099682. This is GREAT news and it means you can support our projects directly via our funding page - this will enable us to publish and distribute more books and deliver workshops to more young people in the UK and in refugee camps as part of our Hopes & Dreams Project 2017.
This year, we aim to connect with more school children in the UK, as well as traumatised children in refugee camps in Europe and we need your help.

This is where you support will go:
