The vision for Mwangaza began in 2005 when Tresor Yenyi, an international student from the Democratic Republic of Congo, had a friend ask him a simple question. “What do you need to make Christmas special for people in the DRC?” That was an easy answer for Tresor: fifty kg of rice, a few tooth brushes, some soap and a couple bags of sugar. To be able to offer these simple things would change the lives of innumerable children.
