Mbale, Uganda

Jenga

At Jenga, we are continually looking for ways to show God's love to the local community. Last year it became quite clear we were to move forward with the communities on the mountain by starting our own coffee growing business. Here we grow our own alongside the locals own crop and then offer to buy theirs at a very good price. We are building good relationships and talking to them about Jesus.

Those who were eligible could then progress through the 3 year Course that the School provides and continue to University. As most of the female population are illiterate and innumerate, a basic premise was to ensure that 50% of the stuent population was female.
