Jenga Village Volunteers is a registered non-governmental, community-based organization. Jenga means ‘build’ and it aims at community development due to the increase in poverty and illiteracy among the youths in the village as a result of disadvantage due to their economic, social, and cultural background. We work to help the community to realize and take action on what is important to them.

Since the Community shares the same challenges, we inform them that community development relies on interaction between people and joint action, rather than individual activity. We believe the communities we belong to play an important part in our personal well-being. It is the source and root of many creative ideas, solutions, wealth, and power, as well as the problems that arise often because of inequality in people’s environment, resources, and opportunities.

The organization has a main aim of improving peoples’ lives in the community especially the vulnerable as well as linking the community with other players in order to address the challenges faced by the local community. The mission of this organization is concerned with the well-being of orphans and vulnerable children, mistreated women, widows, widowers, men, women, people with disabilities, and youths who are disadvantaged due to their economic, social, and cultural backgrounds. The area faces various challenges, but many of them can be prevented at the village level. As the community becomes more and more developed, people will be exposed to less health, poverty, and illiteracy risks and enjoy a higher standard of living and, therefore higher quality of life.

Aangezien je in dit project met kinderen gaat werken, stellen wij het verplicht om een VOG (Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag) aan te vragen.
