Abstract:  Rafiki means friend in Swahili. According to the statement of purpose of this magazine, friendship and understanding among people all over the world can only grow in a climate of critical awareness and mutual respect. This magazine aims to help create such a climate for change and involvement by providing accurate and current information about the cultural, political, economic and social conditions that exist in the world today. Rafiki is more than a source of information. It is a forum for discussion and action around relevant social issues in Canada and the Third World which is directed towards school age children. Stories, poetry, music, games and interviews are written about children and by children.

Rafiki is published by Miles for Millions, the sponsoring organization of voluntary, overseas assistance agencies. It has two main objectives:
1) to raise funds for development assistance projects in the countries of Africa,
Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean - The Third World.
2) to create awareness among Canadians of issues relating to development and
underdevelopment in the Third World and Canada.
