How we work

Majengo Children’s Home is run by three governing bodies: Majengo Canada in Canada, Warren Majengo Foundation in the US and The Majengo Children’s Home Board in Tanzania. Majengo relies entirely on donations and all three boards work together to oversee and implement the projects, with North American board members spending up to six months a year on the ground. The Board of Trustees, which is comprised of members from all three boards, is the decision making body and is referred to as the Board of Trustees.

Majengo is fortunate to have a group of people working together to provide input on the countless questions and challenges that come from running an orphanage. The purpose of this team, the Majengo’s Donor Advisory Council, is to bring together all Majengo team members with the most relevant expertise on a topic from all three countries to explore issues and develop opinions. Recommended solutions are shared with the Board of Directors, which is made of Tanzanian, Canadian and American members.

Majengo Canada and Warren Majengo Foundation each have one paid employee. All donations go toward daily operations and project development in Tanzania, with a small portion being used in North America for fundraising. A monthly control process is in place to oversee operation and project spending in Tanzania, to ensure that all projects are being completed as designed.
