The Majengo Orphanage is supported by 2 North American foundations – Warren Majengo Foundation in the U.S., and Majengo Canada. For tax receipt purposes, please donate to the foundation in your country. International donors can choose from either Foundation.
There are several ways that you can help; Every bit counts and helps….
OPERATING COSTS and the money trail…. 2013 budget – $104,000.
Our 2013 operating costs of supporting 134 children are $104,000. This pays for 77 children living full-time on the Majengo premises: their food, education and medical needs, accommodation, a staff of 18 local people, the cleanliness of kids, clothing and premises…and everything else that enhances their day-to-day lives: sports equipment, new shoes, safaris, celebration and fairwell parties, art supplies; and for 67 children living out in the community with relatives or friends, their education and medical needs.
ICA Tanzania is our local agent on the ground. Charles Luoga is our Majengo project manager responsible for all financial issues. Each January, board members from Warren Majengo and Majengo Canada work alongside Charles, Majengo staff and local village leaders to set the yearly operating budget. Each item is meticulously detailed and checked for correct pricing. Each month Charles sends a detailed requisition for next month’s expenses to Majengo Canada and Warren Majengo Foundation. In addition, he sends the last month’s financial statement of operating costs, and receipts. The requisition is approved by our Majengo accountant before funds are wired back.
All donations to Majengo go directly towards the support of the children. Either to their daily operating needs, to special English enhancement classes, to the financing of our new Majengo facility, first phase of which will be completed in June 2013 at which time we will celebrate the children moving in! All volunteers and board members are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and food while visiting Africa.
IN addition, you might like to sponsor a child, which we hope you will be able to build into your budget as a yearly contribution:
Sponsor a child: $2.13/day covers a child’s education, medical, food, accomodation, care, daily needs and recreation for one year. Total: $750.
Sponsor a child into Mama Annas Enhanced English Medium school...Currently most Majengo children attend a governement primary school from age 7-14, taught predominently in Swahili. But secondary school is taught in English. For $540 a year, you can sponsor a child to Mama Anna’s English Medium school, where all classes are taught in English, a huge jump up for children chosen by how hard they try, and their marks. By April 2013, Majengo has 22 children enrolled into Mama Annas. It is our goal to send all our children there….For more information, click here.
Everyday Support: Support the basic operating needs of our 134 Majengo children, and help give them the essentials to flourish: food, accomodation, medical, education and recreation. Every bit counts! For more information, click here.
Building Majengo: Since September 2012 we’ve been hard at work building a new Majengo orphanage facility for our children to call home, including proper sleeping quarters and dining hall, kitchen, on-site pre-school, library, medical clinic, playground, vegetable garden, goat pen and a community soccer field. By June 2013, we will be moving 77 children there. Estimated budget for phase 2 to complete the build is $215,000. Please help!! For more information, click here.
Masai Girls’ Education Fund: It is said when you support a girl, you help support a whole community.
Help us to send our most vulnerable girls from the broader Majengo community to secondary school and on, including their accomodation, school fees and books, food, uniform and outings. $700 a year. Currently we have supported 30 girls, including 2 who have completed Montessori school and who are now teaching at Majengo, one who is in social work, and one girl who is now in second year university at Dar es Salem.
