Join Our Team

Rafiki Africa Ministries offers job and internship positions. We are quickly growing and in need of more help with the ministry. The internship positions are designed for university and college students before, during, or after completion of their studies. All internship programs are on a voluntary basis and are non-payable. All successful applicants are required to raise their own financial support. Tax deductions for anyone donating towards missionary staff support will be available.

These positions can be short-term or long-term depending on your availability (require at least 3 months commitment). You would need to raise your own support to cover expenses while in country. However, the ministry will provide for accommodation at the Children’s Home. Fundraising would be needed to cover airfare, food, visa or work permit, and in-country transportation.
