Bugwere Land Outreach

Empowering people to break free from poverty through 100 outreaches a year.

The Bugwere tribe consists of approximately 1.2 million people. They settled in a neighbouring region to Mbale which is recognized as one of the poorest and least developed areas by the Ugandan government. The region is synonymous with traditional animist beliefs, and therefore witch doctors are often the first stop for people in need. Sadly, people often pay money they don’t have for blessings and curses that only cause fear and confusion and ultimately turn neighbour against neighbour.

JENGA was invited as a key partner of a new Presidential initiative to bring development and prosperity into Bugwere Land. Our team empowers the Bugwere tribe to challenge the existing superstitious beliefs which have stifled community wellbeing and limited development.  Through education, outreach, savings groups, livelihood intiaitives, and health education, we are equipping the Bugwere tribe break free from poverty and transform their region.

Gad’s Story

We met Gad as part of the Bugwere Land Outreach. He shared with the team that for a long time he had been addicted to alcohol, and that this addiction had caused rifts in his family. His alcohol dependence had also impacted his ability to work and therefore, his ability to meet his and his family’s financial needs.

Through this programme Gad decided to become a Christian and to turn his life around. He has become an evangelist, sharing the love of God in his community, but most importantly, he has now reconciled with his family, stopped drinking and has begun working small jobs which are enabling him to provide for his family. Gad now lives a changed life.
