She was captivated by what amazing work was going on there and returned to volunteer with JENGA for a year with the goat project based in Mooni, Mbale. She is now based in leafy Surrey and still working with animals as a vet, though cats have replaced the goats. Proud to be supporting JENGA and the incredible work they do in helping the most disadvantaged and raising their voice for the voiceless.

US Board

JENGA USA is a stand-alone 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the USA (EIN: 83-2480569) which provides grants to JENGA Uganda and other approved partners in the Mbale region.

AL VALENTINE

I’ve been in the ministry for over 25 years and still alive to talk about it! I love my four children and one wife whose favourite sport is to mock me (They are at a near Olympic caliber). I adore our dog, who also mocks me, but not at my family’s skill level. I love to talk about finances and the world which is guaranteed to depress you in five minutes or less and loved living and working for Jenga in Uganda for over 5 years. In my opinion, it’s the most honest and most effective NGO in Uganda.

AMANDA ONAPITO

Amanda has known and loved the work of JENGA Uganda since 2007. Over the years, she has grown in her admiration for JENGA’s commitment to the many people they work with in Mbale. As a Ugandan living in the US, Zukuka Bora coffee is a must-have in her survival kit to brace Chicago’s brutal winters, where she works in higher education administration.

ANDY HAYBALL

After first spending time in Mbale in 2010 Andy has been privileged to witness both up close and from afar how JENGA embodies a holistic vision of the gospel. Since 2019 he has been involved in JENGA USA, with a vision to facilitate generosity toward the Mbale region from the US. Andy also serves as a pastor at Trinity Church in Larchmont, NY, and Greenwich, CT.

DEREK JOHNSON

Huge fan of JENGA since bumping into Robby in 2007. Genuinely believes there is not a more effective community development org on the planet. Pulled off the biggest scam in getting the hyper-talented and lovely Julie to marry him. A dad to Nathan and Rachel. Co-founded and leads a nonprofit working with surgeons to take better care of children in need of brain surgery.

JENNIFER MEREDITH

Jennifer is a “certified professional volunteer” in many areas of her life after retiring from a career in Accounting and Finance. Wife to lovely husband, Brian, and mother to Katherine and Christopher. She has been the Treasurer of JENGA USA since 2019 having the pleasure of facilitating generosity from donors all across the United States. Jennifer also serves on the Board and is currently the Treasurer for her church, Trinity Church in Greenwich, CT.

Australian Advocate

ALLAN WEATHERALL

In one of those bizarre life-changing moments Allan was assigned a seat next to Robby Keen (pre-JENGA) on a near-empty plane leaving Entebbe. The hours of discussion which followed consolidated a lasting friendship and a partnership around JENGA. These days Allan mainly manages the transfer of donations from Australia and stands ready to serve however he can.
