About Us

The Mwangaza Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) Non-profit Organization in the United States.  We provide support including shelter, food, water, education, medical care and love to many of the most vulnerable children in the Songea District, Ruvuma region, of southern Tanzania. Many of these children have lost their parents, mostly through HIV/AIDS, and are living in extreme poverty and often unsafe living situations.


MWANGAZA is a Swahili word which means “vision for self-reliance” and it expresses the principles of hard work and empowerment for humanity.
