Using innovative approaches & relevant knowledge for peace-building & community transformation-
Peace-building, Gender, Communication, Media, Education, Conscientization, Arts, Culture, Trauma, Wash Our Approach is unique, it’s a socially & culturally sensitive module that allows clients to find hopes and solutions by themselves. Rafiki uses Participatory Theatre – A tool that touches people’s hearts and engages them in active, real-time participation and reflection as opposed to formal “sit and fall back” approaches like seminars and mass media. Our approach strengthens the emotional and psychological appeal of messages, active involvement allows clients to reflect, and influences attitudes in ways that traditional instructions cannot.
Rafiki Theatre has worked in areas related to Conflict & Building, cattle rustling, Gender Based Violence, Female Genital mutilation, Environment & Community Health. Rafiki has conducted activities all-over Uganda and in the sorrounding countries- Kenya, Rwanda, DR Congo, South Sudan.
