We believe that a lack of hope and education is true poverty and aim to transform the lives of deprived children in Africa by paying bursaries for school fees. With an education, they are empowered to believe in their futures and pursue their dreams, they will secure paid, meaningful employment and can lift themselves out of poverty. Without our support, they would remain at home working manual labour to help feed their family or be married off at a tender age for dowry. We also provide 70 of the poorest students at our link school in Uganda with a nutritious daily meal – without which they would brave their long school walk on an empty stomach, with no energy to learn in class. Grassroot and accountable, every penny donated by our supporters goes directly to the schools. The drive behind Rafiki Thabo is clear: positive and sustainable change in local economy, politics and health can and will happen. Gender equality and an end to poverty is possible. Underpinning it all is education.
