MomellaFoundation was founded and is headed by Marlies and Jörg Gabriel, owners of Hatari Lodge in Momella and Shu'mata Camp in the Maasai Steppe. Marlies and Jörg cooperate closely with the Momella village council, project-specific consultants and project partners on-site and abroad in the organization and management of the Foundation.

Within the village council all groups and individuals concerned with village matters are represented, including: The elected village chairman, his representative, the church-elders, the school-board, an elected (not school-employed) headmaster, a representative of the government school committee (who also works as a teacher), and also a government representative, similar to a communal executive.

The individual projects (see project description) are each represented by a speaker or management team member within the MomellaFoundation.
