The Rafiki Advanced Learning Institute (RALI) program is being developed as the final step in the education that Rafiki provides in Africa. As orphans grow up in the Rafiki Villages they begin in Rafiki’s preschools and advance up through high school. The question comes up as to what happens to these children when they graduate from high school. The plan has always been in place that Rafiki will see that our graduates go to university, trade school, find employment that supports them, or marry to become homemakers. The time has come that the first Rafiki children are graduating from high school in their Rafiki Villages where they have been given a Christian classical education. For the benefit of those who want to become teachers, Rafiki is gradually developing the Rafiki Advanced Learning Institute (RALI). RALI will be housed on Rafiki grounds and will include students from the community along with Rafiki resident students.
The first discipline being developed is known as the Rafiki Institute of Classical Education (RICE). RICE is a teacher-training course that will produce certified teachers in the country.
The course work consists of self-paced learning in the RALI building with practicum in the Rafiki Village schools.
Along with Rafiki resident students who want to become teachers, church-recommended high school graduates may attend RICE as day students.
It is planned that other disciplines will be developed as buildings are constructed. They are a Rafiki Institute of Business (RIB), Rafiki Institute of Arts (RIA), and Rafiki Institute of Music (RIM)
