Ivette and Luis's Soap Project

My name is Ivette Rodriguez I am the founder of Enchanted Soaps and More. I am from Puerto Rico and I always enjoy helping others, especially when it comes to making this world a better place. This is my great story with KAFO and the people of Konkourona.

When Luis shared the goals of KAFO, an organization helping the people of Konkourona in Burkina Faso, with me, I got excited since it brought to my mind the hard experience I had in Puerto Rico with hurricane Maria. We lived with no running water and no access to food and electricity. Immediately I asked, “How can I help?” (I remember saying I can make soap, HAHAHA) Luis said, “I want to spread the word about KAFO and its projects and how others can help but we also need to get donations to keep the hope alive.” I said, “Well lets make soap!!!!”

I knew Burkina Faso produces shea butter and that I could use it in a soap, while also supporting the women in the area who produce the shea. I thought we could use the colors of the flag to represent their people, so I decided to go with red, green and yellow, and I added a fruity fresh scent. Who does not like that, right?

Then I needed a name…Immediately, “Hopes & Dreams” came to my mind, because we are working for to make the hopes and dreams of the people in Konkourona come true. This is how “KAFO HOPES & DREAMS” soap was born. We are giving a piece of the village in every bar in exchange for an opportunity for better lives for its citizens.

I feel very honored to help others and proud to be part of such a beautiful project.

Co-founder Cathy Organizes Thanksgiving Day Walk

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  As each year passes, I become more and more aware of just how fortunate I am.  The best way for me to celebrate that great fortune is to share what I have been given with others.  I am not alone in this feeling.  So many kind and loving people fill soup kitchens with great food and generous volunteers on Thanksgiving every year.  In fact, there are often so many people so eager to help that soup kitchens need to turn them away to make room for the people who need that help.



KAFO means "Thank You" in the local Bobo language spoken in Konkourona, Burkina Faso.  This year, KAFO would like to invite you to join us at 9:00 am on Thursday, November 25th either in person at Peace Valley Park in Doylestown, PA or virtually at a location of your choice for a walk of gratitude.  Let's walk together to celebrate gratitude for our lives, our families, our friends, our work, our homes, our food, and so much more.  



If you are willing, we would so greatly appreciate any expressions of gratitude in the form of donations to our organization so we can continue the work we have started to support development in Konkourona.  There has been such incredible work happening in the village already with the help of hundreds of friends and family members who have already been so generous, and we are so thankful for that help.



A light breakfast will be provided for those who join us in person at Peace Valley Park for the Thanksgiving Day walk.  We look so forward to having so many people who care so deeply about lifting up a village of people they have never met all together.  Just imagine the power of that love.
