We are thankful for your interest in volunteering at Rafiki Africa! We are fortunate to count many committed volunteers to be among our partners. We couldn’t do it alone. On the US side, Rafiki is largely run by volunteers.

Volunteer with us locally

We are based in Lancaster, PA and welcome volunteers! Are you interested in serving on a committee that supports the work in Kenya? Committees include the Board, the Education Committee, the Marketing Committee, Fundraising Committee. Or maybe you run a business and want to donate your services to us? We love local partners, reach out and contact us!

Intern with us

The possibilities are endless for potential interns! Internships with us are very customizable and could be either in the US office or in Kenya, in a variety of areas such as media management, business administration, social work, education, sustainable agriculture, or healthcare. Start a conversation with the form below to learn more and let us know what you might be interested in.


Want to volunteer without leaving the States, but don’t live locally? We are always seeking skilled volunteers who may be willing to donate their services, skills or advice pro bono, in areas like accounting, grant-writing and information management. If you think your skills might be useful but they’re not listed, feel free to contact us anyway.
