Jengana is a Christian ministry that seeks to reach to people living in very desperate situations in the slums of Nairobi in Kenya. It was born out of personal experience of life in poverty changed by the compassionate response of many people. We are aware that the need surpasses our ability and resources, as such, by faith we seek not to change the whole world but the world of one person at a time.
Mother Teresa once said; “being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.” For over nine years, Jengana has not only dared to challenge hunger, we have given care to the ignored, opened our hearts to the unwanted and forgotten souls and brought love to some of the most desperate places on this earth. In reading through this website, we hope you will see that Jengana’s unfaltering commitment to bringing hope and the message of God’s love to the most impoverished people of Kenya. We understand that Jengana cannot change the world. However, we are certain that with the help of some generous and caring people and with the grace of God, we can change the world for some people.
