Amy Ketcham

Rafiki Foundation

Ghana, Africa

Amy is headmistress at the Rafiki Junior Secondary School in Ghana providing orphans and extremely needy children in the community with a modified Classical Christian education. Rafiki's focus is to meet the physical, spiritual, emotional and educational needs of orphans. Rafiki's mission is to help raise children to become godly leaders in and contributors to their communities and countries.

Rafiki's goal is to establish one training village in each of the ten following countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia, and Uganda. These Villages are funded by donors outside Africa and staffed by Rafiki professional missionary staff and hired nationals. A Rafiki Training Village consists of twelve homes for ten orphans each, four resident halls, schools for these orphans, vocational training day schools for vulnerable teenage girls and boys, medical care for occupants, and facilities for training select African church denominations to replicate Rafiki’s efforts.
