JENGA Design

Training women to produce beautiful, high-quality crafts for market.

JENGA is reaching out to and empowering unemployed women with the ability to earn supplemental income for their families through the creation and selling of crafts.

After hearing the needs and desires of local women who were already engaged in JENGA’s more relational ministries, it became apparent that these women were desperate to contribute to their families. Through large group trainings and smaller weekly follow-ups, JENGA design has created an avenue for these ladies to sell handmade jewellery, various bags, custom bunting, and more.

JENGA is training these groups in fashioning their merchandise, ensuring the quality of their work, providing them with access to both a local and international audience to purchase their product, and delivering a fair wage for the hard work put into their crafts.

Naomi’s Story

I have a certificate in tailoring from a local tailoring school. When JENGA’s Young Women’s Vocational training programme were looking for a new tailoring teacher, they asked me. I began as a volunteer to train a small number of the girls, but was then asked to become the full teacher. I had been working with the vocational programme for two years, and so, the leaders of JENGA Design asked me if I could also work for them.

Since then, I have been making toiletry bags, sanitary pads, table mats, bunting and other fun craft designs which we sell at a local restaurant as well as to some of JENGA’s visitors. As part of this work, I received further training in how to make some of these gifts, and I have also been able to impart and share that training with those I teach in the training programme. I have also recently begun using my skills to sew period underwear for Every Girl, one of JENGA’s menstrual health projects, enabling girls and women in our programmes to have access to top quality menstrual products, as well as running occasional pad making trainings.

Now, because of my work with the Young Women’s Vocational programme and JENGA Design, it has allowed me and my family to buy land and begin constructing our own home. I have also been able to pass on my learning, and train others, seeing them able to use their skills to be better able to financially support themselves and their families as well. I am thankful for the opportunities that these programmes have brought to me, as well those I work with and train, and I love knowing that our beautiful Ugandan designs are being enjoyed all around the world!
