Marafiki
Utilizing education as a vehicle for change

Marafiki

Marafiki, the Swahili word for friends, is a faith-based non-profit organization. Our stated mission and goals are to equip, transform, and promote sustainability for the people we are serving. Our collaborative efforts support mission projects in Africa and other parts of the world.

We recognize that there are many needs in the world, and no one group can meet all of those needs. Marafiki is in a unique position to come alongside various mission groups and organizations and fill in gaps or missing pieces.
