Into Africa: Classical Education and Rafiki Schools

Brad Ryden June 26, 2014

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2014


Rafiki Foundation operates ten Christian and Classical (CC) Schools in ten countries in Africa. The presenter was fortunate to visit three Rafiki schools in West Africa this spring in order to explore ways in which CC schools in the U.S. (including his own) can partner with and support this organization. The presentation will include images and video from that recent visit as well as suggestions for ways teachers and schools can support CC education in Africa.
