Your Majengo Mid-Year Update!

DID YOU KNOW IT’S MAJENGO’S 10TH BIRTHDAY?
We wouldn’t be celebrating this milestone birthday without the generosity of donors like you who have made every bit of progress possible.

Over the last 12 months, we have welcomed 7 new children into the Majengo family, implemented our Exit Strategy Program which helps our 18-year-old children reintegrate into their communities, and completed 5 projects from our wish list. This wouldn’t have been possible without you!

Majengo is made up of:

-3 children in post-secondary school

-21 children in secondary school

-70 children in primary school with 17 graduating in 2018

-55 children enrolled in Majengo’s Community Development Projects


“One day, when I have lots of money, I will give it to someone else who needs it more than I do”

SUCCESSES!
We have successfully implemented several projects at Majengo this year, including:

  • A New Cow, Goat, Duck & Chicken House: to keep our animals safe and fed, and to help teach the children farming and animal care.
  • New Wash Sinks for Clothes & Dishesto allow the use of running water and to eliminate stagnant water with improved drainage.
  • A New Plumbing System: to separate clean and dirty water, and ensure the children have consistent access to clean water.
  • A New House: to comfortably house 32 children, open up space in other houses, and eventual­ly allow us to welcome more children into Majengo.
  • A New Library: to provide a space for reading and homework, and encourage reading for fun.
