About Us

Who We Are

JENGE Kulture is a Pan African social change initiative that promotes a culture that translates social concern to creative, innovative action across the continent.

Why 'JENGE'?

The name ‘JENGE’ is truncated from the Swahili word ‘TUJENGE’ that means ‘LET US BUILD’.

 

JENGE is a Pan-African philosophy of growth, progress, and development through creative action, underpinned by 3 fundamental principles: Unity in Diversity, Social Responsibility and Creativity/Innovation.

 

We are promoting a culture that encourages Africa’s young creators, innovators and changemakers to engage creativity in taking action in response to local and regional social challenges.
