There are many ways to host such a fulfilling gathering, but here are a couple of ideas to spark your creativity!

Host a Gathering on a Special Day

Take advantage of birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events! Invite a group of family and friends to join your for coffee, tea, or an activity. Take the opportunity to introduce them to Mwangaza and the work we do to support Tanzanian communities through unified education. In lieu of gifts, ask that a financial gift be made in your honor for Mwangaza.


Host a Tanzanian Tea Party

They say the way to the heart is through the stomach! Offer up a taste of Tanzania to motivate people to learn more about Mwangaza. Whip up some homemade chai tea and pair it with an East African donut (called mandazi) to get people to open up their hearts to the Mwangaza mission.

Chai Tea Recipe
- Simmer 6 cups of water and 7 teaspoons black tea leaves for 10 minutes. Add 6 cups of milk, and a pinch of both cardamom and ginger. Bring to a boil. Add sugar to taste.

Mandazi Recipe
- 1 egg
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup milk
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 cups white flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
Bring all the ingredients to room temperature before mixing them together. Mis all the ingredients together, adding more flour if necessary to make the dough soft, not sticky. Roll the dough on a lightly-floured board until it is about ¼ inch thick. Cut into triangles and fry in hot oil until both sides are golden brown. Remove mandazi from the oil and drain on paper towels or newspaper. Mandazi are best served warm.
