Rafiki Foundation, Africa

Cultivating a Multitude of Godly Contributors in Africa. Rafiki means “friend” in Swahili and depicts the purpose of the Foundation – to help people know God and raise their standard of living with excellence and integrity.

God’s Word at Work

Since 1985, the vision of the Rafiki Foundation has been to cultivate a multitude of godly contributors in Africa through Bible study and classical Christian education.

To accomplish this, Rafiki established 10 Rafiki Training Villages within the African countries of Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Rafiki’s vision is carried out in each Village through five programs: Bible Study, Education, Teacher Training, Orphan Care, and Widows.

Over the decades, God has sent out many men and women to join in this mission in Africa. Perhaps he is calling you!
