The orphanage

Love, Integrity, Accountability, Passion, Volunteerism, Respect

In 2018 Central Government has seen it is appropriate and gave us a full registration. Enjivai Orphanage has the registration number 00009850.

Our mission

ENJIVAI is an orphanage established in 2016 at Arusha, Kambi Ya Chupa Madukani aiming to strengthening the capacity of community though developing less privileged children and orphans  welfare through capacitating families and community in general.

The owner and current director started the construction of the orphanage in 2016 with his own resources. He received financial support from local communities, individuals and some volunteers from abroad. In 2018, the government then granted a full registration and this is still the case to this day.

It started with a kindergarten for 12 children, where they also received a balanced diet and clothes. Today, the orphanage is run as a half-day school for children between the ages of two and six. Since January 2023, lessons have been taught according to the specifications of the Montessori system. At present, 32 children attend our school. Some of the children have neither father nor mother and live with their relatives or people who take care of them.  In most cases, these guardians are not in a position to provide sufficient care for these children. Unfortunately, there is still no place for a permanent stay in the orphanage, as the current house does not offer enough space.  We are therefore planning to build our own school with adequate accommodation.
