Knowing that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and hopelessness in Africa, Rafiki is asking you to join us in educating the next generation of business leaders, educators, physicians, clergy—and godly husbands and wives. Through the Rafiki School Curriculum and Rafiki Bible Study, our resident children and non-resident day students are being prepared to meet the challenges facing their future.
Agnes came to her school interview in a tattered, dirty bathrobe. She was very timid, yet determined to answer the questions. Agnes wanted to come to school at Rafiki. She had spent a short time in a government school, but when her teacher quit, the school closed. Her little hand shook as she took the pencil and tried to write her name. . .she managed to write only the “Ag”.
After just one year of kindergarten at the Rafiki Training Village Tanzania, Agnes not only writes very well, she enjoys reading and is a whiz at math. She received “The Most Improved Student” award last year. Agnes always says “please” and “thank you, teacher.”
Agnes is among the poorest of the poor. She was severely malnourished and below average weight/height for her age. Now she enjoys breakfast and lunch every day at school.
Agnes is growing spiritually, mentally, and physically. She listens to the Bible stories carefully and loves to sing the hymn, “Trust and Obey”.
Your financial gift in any amount is crucial to help ensure that each Rafiki student will continue to have qualified teachers, textbooks, school supplies, uniforms, and two meals daily—to prepare them for tomorrow’s leadership. Your help is greatly needed. Rafiki estimates that it costs $1,000 per student per year ($85 monthly) to educate each child. As we continue to add more and more students to our Villages, your support becomes even more vital. Donations to the Education Fund also provide college scholarships to the Rafiki orphans to provide for tuition. Please help today by clicking on this link to the Rafiki Education Fund.
