Drooping leaves on African violets usually indicate a water stress - generally, too much water which can lead to crown rot. You need to water your plants thoroughly but then allow the soil to dry out a bit before watering again. I just lift the pots up. If they are heavy, the soil is moist; if they feel lightweight, it's time to water. Best wishes with your plants!
