Rafiki Fund (Child &Teacher Sponsorship)

015The Rafiki Fund is the sponsorship program that allows Peace Matunda to support our 24 resident children, our 200+ Peace Matunda Scool day children, as well our teachers. Sponsors help facilitate the education of local underprivileged children. As the first step to overcoming poverty, education gives these children the skills, knowledge, and opportunity to create change and achieve economic development for their communities and country.

The name ‘Rafiki’ has been taken from the Swahili word meaning friend and has been chosen as the essence of the program, helping to find a friend for a teacher or a child living in poverty and providing them with access to the most needed luxuries in the developing world, an education.  Sponsorship facilitates the education of these students that are so eager to learn.

There are three sponsorship options within the Rafiki Fund; the Amani House Sponsorship for our 24 resident children, the Student Sponsorship for the day students at Peace Matunda School, and the Teacher Sponsorship.

Sponsorship Details

The Rafiki Fund is not just about financial support but emotional support too. We encourage sponsors to communicate with them through rafiki@peacematunda.org that has been designed for communication between the children/teachers and international sponsors. In addition to voluntary communication Peace Matunda also sends school reports accompanied by letters and pictures from the children/teachers biannually.

Peace Matunda would not be able to provide facilities to local underprivileged children without the help of sponsors. To show our appreciation we invite sponsors to visit Peace Matunda and offer a free week of accommodation each year.

There is no formal contract for the sponsorship so if personal circumstances dictate, you are allowed to cancel at any time.

Thank you for your interest in our sponsorship program, for further details please contact our Project Coordinator at coordinator@peacematunda.org.
