Our hope, through our sponsorship program, is to make life-long friendships between our sponsors and their sponsored children.  Sponsors have the opportunity to support with either $30, $60, or $90 a month, which provides the children with everything they need to grow and live life to the fullest.  Through writing letters, we hope that the friendships will grow between sponsors and children,  and that maybe one day there will be an opportunity to meet as well.  To sponsor a child, click here: SPONSORSHIP.


Where would these children be if they weren't at Rafiki?

Each child at Rafiki was rescued from a life-threatening situation.  It's possible if they were not at Rafiki that they would be fighting for their lives. We thank God for Rafiki and we thank God for you!

Sponsor a Child

Volunteer at Rafiki

Are you interested in taking a trip to Rafiki and volunteering?  There are opportunites to travel to Ghana and to visit Rafiki; however, our trips are only taken if there is a specific need.  Because Rafiki is a home, and we are guests in their home, we want to best protect them.  However, there are needs and if we can help partern in fullfilling some of those needs then we go.
