To create critically conscious communities where learning together improves lives
Mwangaza is a faith-based organization and our faith drives everything that we do. Mwangaza is deeply embedded in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania, which works closely with its companion synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. We are “walking together in the light of God”.
