Meet Our Resident Family



Our long time Resident Director, Mbaira Maorongarti, along with her husband, Maxime, and their two young children provide the ABC house with a strong, loving family presence. Mbaira, an immigrant from Chad, received her undergraduate degree from Wellesley College. She understands the effort it takes for our scholars to commit to educational excellence. As the quintessential ABC “mom” she supports, cajoles, and cheers the girls through their individual journeys at Wellesley ABC. Her strong leadership and bright spirit are a great asset to our program.


Meet Our Chef


Wellesley ABC is fortunate to have professional Chef Roshana Godfrey in our kitchen.  Roshana has been with Wellesley ABC since 2012.  Before coming to Wellesley ABC, Roshana was a line chef in the kitchens of such well-known Boston area restaurants as Rialto, no9 Park, Harvest and Chez Henri, and was the founding chef at Mariposa Bakery Cafe.


Mbaira is always there to support and celebrate the ABC scholars – including including award ceremonies, graduations and everything in between.
