Volunteers drive our U.S. organization
At the heart of MGRC is heart, actually, a lot of hearts!
MGRC is driven by a collective of compassionate individuals, each contributing their unique skills and expertise. In the United States, a dedicated team of volunteers generously offers their legal, financial, business acumen, accounting, and marketing services. Additionally, we have volunteers who create personalized clothing for the girls, oversee website management, and provide photography and videography expertise. Our volunteers span every aspect of support, ensuring that the girls have everything they need to thrive.
MGRC is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit in the United States. It is a registered non-government organization (NGO) in Tanzania. MGRC is governed by a USA board and a Tanzania board.
Meet the people who make it happen each and every day
It is quite a challenge to make sure that over 60 girls are prepared, fed, and arrive at school on time every single day. Taking care of their overall welfare, which includes providing them with nutritious meals, academic support, and healthcare, while also instilling in them the values of respect, responsibility, and resilience, requires an exceptional team. We are fortunate to have a group of skilled individuals who not only share our vision but also devote themselves to ensuring that every girl has the opportunity to achieve financial independence.
What would we do without our house mothers?
What would we do without moms to wake us up in the morning, find our shoes and other lost items, help with homework, comfort us we are sad, cheer us on when we need encouragement? The house mothers at MGRC do all this and more. In addition to being a “mom”, each of these ladies take on other responsibilities such as teaching, baking, sewing, cooking, and some utilize their medical training to serve as a MGRC nurse. These are just a few of the ways our House Mothers support the mission and values of MGRC and enrich the lives of the girls.
