Our Mission

Muanjadi Organization is a nonprofit organization helping young girls to complete their high school education and therefore helping them avoid an early-arranged marriage in the Democratic Republic of Congo. For many parents in the Congo, marrying off their daughters constitutes a source of revenue, in a country where people live with less than $1.00 USD a day with a GDP per Capita of $300 (CIA 2009). We are a women empowerment project, and would like to bring awareness about the effects of early unwanted marriages for these teens in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We focus on education, direct assistance and networking.  Learn more about our mission.....

Impact Statement

At Muanjadi Organization we are dedicated to educating young women in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Through fundraising and donations Muanjadi Organization provides tuition and supplies for girls in  7th-12th grade.  Three years ago we began with 6 girls sponsored for a year of high school. There are 100 young women going to high school this year and one young woman is now sponsored in college for the 2012-13 school year.

This year our goals are to increase the number of sponsored high school students by at least 25 and to send 5 young ladies to local colleges.  Muanjadi Organization is increasing the number of fundraising events this year as well.  In addition we have put together a grant writing committee to establish the long-term continuation of our sponsorship programs.
