Namatala Prayer Group

A unique gathering of 200 women to fellowship and support each other in their shared struggles.

In 2015, JENGA initiated a weekly women’s prayer group for ladies struggling with alcohol addiction in Namatala. Its impact has been vast.

At the centre of a slum largely divided by tribe, language, and religion, JENGA’s Thursday morning prayer breakfast is a unique gathering that erases boundaries and cultivates unity. This programme has created a space where women usually separated by cultural circumstance come together over tea and chapatti to connect and support each other in their shared struggles.

Not feeling comfortable to attend formal church, many of these women still desire and value the importance of having a safe place to offer and receive prayer. The depth of relationships formed have spoken volumes to other locals, and increasingly men and children join the women in an ever growing example of unlikely, yet transformative, community.

Cate’s Story

Cate was passing by the Namatala Prayer Group and she was invited to join in and hear the Gospel message. Cate was known for struggling with alcoholism. A few weeks later, she had an accident and broke her hip bone. She attended the Namatala Prayer group and everyone prayed for and supported her in her recovery. Cate decided to become a Christian and she has been attending the prayer group, it’s saving’s group as well as the Namatala Drug and Alcohol recovery groups.

Cate has really enjoyed the counselling given in the groups, and through the trainings, she has now been able to stop drinking. Cate has also been living with a HIV diagnosis but she hadn’t realised the importance of taking regular anti-retrovirals. The group were able to encourage Cate about the importance of taking these medications, and because she is now taking them regularly, her health is much improved. As a result of all of this, and her participation in the saving’s group, Cate is now able to better support her grandchildren, providing them with nutritious meals. Her life has been transformed as she is now living a healthier lifestyle.
