Majengo Children’s Home provides food, clothing, education, and love to vulnerable children in Tanzania who have nowhere else to turn. 

What we do

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. There are currently 260+ children enrolled in Majengo’s programming.

While Majengo still aims to uplift individual children every day, we know that support of one child cannot exist in a vacuum. That is why, as the Majengo family grows, we continue to broaden our focus to the wider community. We know that an uplifted community helps each child grow and thrive. We have shifted our focus outward by focusing both on programs in the home and in the community.

Majengo is always operating many programs and projects. You can learn about them in detail under OUR IMPACT.

Some of our core focuses are:

Community Capacity Building

Throughout the year, Majengo runs training programs for local villagers, parents and young people in the Majengo community. These programs touch on a wide variety of topics, each designed to empower through education. Some topics include:

– Livestock & Agriculture, Financial Planning, Family Planning and Sexual Health, Women’s Rights, Menstrual Hygiene, Female Genital Mutilation, Parenting

These programs run throughout the year and are available to hundreds of people who are interested.

Community Food Subsidy Pack

A Food Pack will subsidize a family’s food for one month. It will include basics like:

  • Cooking oil
  • Beans
  • Ugali (a local polenta)
  • Makande (a local corn and bean mixture)


Maintaining a centre with accessible roads, beds to sleep in, and security helps make Majengo a safe and secure home.

Hygiene & Sanitation

Hygiene and sanitation are critical to keeping all of the children healthy, including those with chronic health conditions. Proper sinks, clean drinking water, bathrooms, and hygiene programs prevent the spread of germs and diseases.

Heath & Wellbeing

Maintaining the physical and emotional health of each child is integral to their growth and development. This includes providing regular medical care, treatment for children with chronic illnesses, health training programs, and faith programs to allow each child to practice the religion of their choice.


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

We provide uniforms, school fees, books, and any materials that make going to school possible.

Community Development

These programs include: a pre-school, a Live-Out Program, a Special Education Program and a Maasai Girls Education Program. It also includes community training programs, capacity building, and support.

Food Security

Keeping food on the table helps our children grow and thrive. In addition to providing healthy balanced meals, we also have a farm and garden to ensure continuous food security and to teach farming skills. This program also extends to community programs to provide food packs to families facing food insecurity.
