The Rafiki Thabo Foundation supports education projects in Kenya, Uganda and Lesotho. Our purpose is to improve the quality of life and increase the life opportunities for members of our link communities.
All Rafiki Thabo projects are initiated and managed by experienced members of the communities in Africa. The majority of our work is about supporting individuals’ education in our focus communities. Through our committees in-country, we provide grants to promising students to enable them to continue their education at secondary, polytechnic and university levels where otherwise they would be unable to afford the fees.
All students supported by Rafiki Thabo have already qualified for their further education by their own merits. We simply provide financial assistance to enable them to access the education they are qualified to have. The charity also supports other requests from our link communities, such as a school meals programme in Uganda, menstrual health training to girls in Uganda, and the ongoing development of secondary schools in each community.
