Rafiki Foundation  |  Training Africans to Transform Africa for Christ

My Name is



Child Village: Ethiopia
Child ID: CJ032
Kalkidan was abandoned at a very young age, so his elderly grandparents cared for him. Because of their limited resources, his grandparents were going to have him become a shepherd until they heard about the Rafiki Foundation. Kalkidan was approved and arrived at the Rafiki Village in Ethiopia on May 4th, 2011. His name means "promise" in Amharic, the national tribal language of Ethiopia. He now has the promise of a new hope and future as his needs are met, he receives a quality education, and he has the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ! Kalkidan likes to sing hymns during family devotions. He asks questions to better understand the Scriptures. For example, "Why did God choose David and not one of the other brothers?" He understands God's plans are Sovereign. His favorite Scripture verse is Revelation 22:20.
