Rafiki Foundation  |  God's Word at Work

Teach in Africa

Model Classical Christian Teacher-Missionary, various grades PreK-12:

Use your passion for classical education on the African continent.

Teach for a year with the Rafiki Foundation, engaging the hearts and minds of orphaned and impoverished African youth and teaching them to love what is true, good, and beautiful.

As a short-term missionary at any one of ten Rafiki Classical Christian schools in Africa you’ll get to experience this as shared by one of our recent missionary teachers: “[Rafiki students] are exposed to facets of learning I never had as a teacher nor as a student in the United States. The Freshmen class begins the study of Othello next Monday; the Sophomore class is just finishing a 7-week study of English poet John Donne; a week ago the 6th graders acted out a scene from The Iliad, Homer’s adventures of Ulysses.”

As a model teacher in one of our ten Rafiki schools in Africa, you will provide instruction to students across various ages and subjects of your specialty. You will also model best practices and train African teachers using the Rafiki classical Christian education curriculum.

We are asking the Lord for thirty classical Christian educators to teach and train across our ten Rafiki schools—one each for the grammar, logic, and rhetoric stages. The Rafiki Foundation serves in the following African countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia
