Mwangaza trust launched Kajiado branch board in July 2013 with a team of 9 members and an overseer who is a pastor. The board was mandated to start the initial preparations for the launch of Mwangaza Trust programs in the area. With the policy for Mwangaza, it was important that the community is taken through a capacity building process for them to understand how Mwangaza operates before any major program could be launched in the area.
