jenga cdo: mbale, uganda

JENGA Uganda was founded in 2005 when a Ugandan Pastor and a British businessman came together over a shared vision of God’s love for the people of Uganda. Since then, they’ve invested their hearts, skills and lives into the community development ministry of JENGA in and around Mbale-town. JENGA operates over 40 varied, community development projects aimed at strengthening local society and offering a practical, tangible representation of God’s love to the people they impact. We serve people of many different ages, languages, and religions through programmes involving education, men and women’s ministry, health, street children, prison outreach, clean water projects, income generating initiatives and more. We’re ordinary people, faithfully working for an extraordinary purpose: sharing God’s love, serving the vulnerable and seeing lives changed.
