Get involved in our activities

We would like to invite you to join us as partners of The Mwangaza Foundation dedicated to helping disadvantaged children. These children include those who have lost their parent/s to AIDS, children who have been abandoned by their parents and children and families that are just barely surviving while trying to overcome extreme poverty and hopelessness.

Other than sponsoring children with material or financial help in Tanzania, you can also make a difference in a child’s life if you tutor/mentor them.

 

Studies have shown that tutoring and mentoring underprivileged improves their academic performance, chances of going to college and getting a good job allowing them to be productive members of society. In addition to those amazing benefits it also contributes to their overall well-being, and the well-being of the community.

 

Please help spread the word! 

Relay this message to school service learning organizations and other people you think will be of help. We can all make a difference in the lives of children, physically, emotionally, spiritually and with their opportunity for education.  We can bring them hope.

Mwangaza is a Swahili word meaning "Vision". Mwangaza Foundation provides a vision that will guide the children through their efforts to achieve "Self-Reliance".
