Empowerment

At Flying Scarfs we use the term Empowerment as our rallying cry. We have seen the effects of using it as a tool to drive results in each of our endeavors. Whether we're in Afghanistan, Haiti, Kenya or back home in the US, empowerment is more than just a word we throw around...it's the future.

Kenya

As many of our supporters are aware, Flying Scarfs is an international development organization aimed at ending poverty. While we started in Afghanistan, our goal was always to expand into other regions of the world. This July we are taking our concept of social business to Kenya. Since we are a non-profit and none of our staff receive financial compensation, we are trying our best to raise enough through "crowd funding." If you would like to donate to our trip please see our fundraising page by clicking HERE
