Welcome to Najenga Hope. It is my hope that by reading this you will be able to understand a bit about the people we live and work with and what we are doing in this part of Africa.
Najenga is a Swahili word which means “we are building”. It is not just about physical building but an attitude endeavouring to bring hope to the people of Congo in serving and faith.
There is a Kiswahili proverb which says “Haba nahaba, hujaza Kibaba”“ Little by little, the container/pot gets filled.
While we may overlook small changes, they are the ones which, put together over time eventually makes a difference. This is a metaphor of hope. It highlights value of patience and hard work. Change happens in small prudent but determined steps.
