ujenzi noun Root
|At Ujenzi Trust, we support efforts to identify and build sustainable solutions to intractable health challenges in resource-poor communities.
Ujenzi Charitable Trust is named for the Swahili ujenzi, meaning to build or to construct. Ujenzi is committed to supporting the essential human right that all people have access to basic quality health care.|
We exist to provide material support to programs where there is an opportunity for the highest return on the investment of every gift received from our donors.
Collectively, the initiatives Ujenzi helps support:
We have constructed a nearly cost-free operational infrastructure to harness the generative power of the Internet in our campaign to engage a global community of potential donors and highly skilled volunteers. Our unique organization of global volunteers work together with minimal overhead and no management fees.
- place educators and innovative, low-cost technology in the communities where they are needed most
- build local capacity that will allow for the sustainable delivery of health care in the future
- raise awareness of basic human rights, especially for women and children in vulnerable populations
The Division of Global Health and Human Rights (GHHR) of the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) collaborates with numerous partners from around the world to bring innovative, high-impact solutions to a wide variety of resource-scarce settings.
We have partnered with the GHHR as they marshal the experiences and resources of the MGH community to create systemic change on health issues that affect the most marginalized and vulnerable populations in the world.
