Rose Allinder

Serving In: Zambia
External ID: 123

Rose Allinder has been faithfully serving with Rafiki Foundation for seventeen years. Her first trip outside of North America was to Ghana with Rafiki, and that seems to have sparked her commitment to the foundation’s mission. She would later be a part of setting up the school at the first Rafiki Village in Ghana!

Rose is currently the headmaster at the Rafiki Village in Zambia. Before her work at Rafiki, Rose was a Special Education teacher and associate professor of Special Education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She has a Bachelors of Science in Special Education from the University of Central Arkansas, a Masters of Science in Special Education, and a Ph. D. in Education and Human Development from Vanderbilt University.

While she was teaching, she learned about Rafiki’s plan to build orphanages and schools. She felt that her background and experience would be well-suited for Rafiki’s endeavors. Moreover, God had been placing missions on her heart. As she read Romans 12 in Bible Study Fellowship, she saw Paul’s words “present yourself as a living sacrifice…This is your spiritual act of worship” in a new light. 

Rose says she has grown more appreciative of the many opportunities she had for education growing up because she has seen so many children out of school in Africa. She also continues to be humbled by the dedication of those she has worked with in Africa to improve their lives, the lives of their children, and the lives of the students in the Rafiki schools.

"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect" (Romans 12:1-2).
