Woza Moya is a registered non profit organization NPO No: 017 966,  a registered Section 21 company 2009/013994/08 and has Public Benefit Organization (PBO) status for the purposes of Tax Exempt donations.
The project is guided by a Board of Directors and a Community Advisory Council that meet quarterly. The programmes are run by a team of 5 dedicated managers who hold weekly meetings and submit bi-monthly written reports to the Director of Operations. The CCGs are the hands and feet of the organisation; once a month they report both in writing and in face to face meetings to the managers on the progress of their work.

Woza Moya believes that the development of our own team members is vital to the growth and development of the organisation. There is therefore ongoing movement with regard to capacity building and training and development, on all levels, within Woza Moya.

The WAY we work is as important as WHAT we do. Please read our guiding principles as agreed upon by everyone at Woza Moya.
