It takes a village to build a child and it takes a home to help that child grow.
Majengo Children’s Home provides food, clothing, education, and love to vulnerable children in Tanzania who have nowhere else to turn.
Majengo is the Swahili word for “build.” And that’s our commitment to the children of the Majengo Children’s Home in Tanzania. We provide stability, security, and support for the children in our care by offering good nutrition, medical services, clothing, and education. From childhood through to adulthood, we help them build their futures, encouraging them to become vital, self-sufficient, and contributing members of their community.
At Majengo, we’re not just building a home. We’re building futures, one child at a time.
What We Do
Located in the village of Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania, Majengo is home to 87 vulnerable children between the ages of 4 and 18. Each child receives all the necessities: food, clothing, medical care, education, and love. A team of 22 local staff members care for the children and live as one big happy family.
In addition to the children’s home, Majengo also runs several community development programs to support the most vulnerable children from the surrounding area.
Majengo’s goal is to provide each child with everything they need to become independent and well-adjusted adults, who will be able to raise their own families and give back to the community.
Majengo Children’s Home is a registered charity in both Canada and the US.
Majengo equips each child with a strong foundation to become independent and well-adjusted adults, focusing on six core building blocks.
