We Are



About us

Janela Africana is an NGO at the service of God and neighbour, active in church planting and community development in the area of Vilanculos, Mozambique.


Janela Africana was born following the dream of Caitlyn and Emerson, the founding couple of the project, to share God's love with African people in precarious situations through concrete and effective actions.


We want to restore the self-esteem and dignity of all so that each individual can be aware of his or her potential and priceless value in the eyes of God.


We want to invest in social projects and encourage people to start projects that can bring them alternative income to enable them to get out of extreme poverty in a sustainable way.

Donate your holidays, come and discover the riches of Africa from the inside! Not only will you put your skills at the service of your fellow man, but you will also live a rich and unique experience in an environment totally different from the one in which you have always lived.

There is as much to give as there is to receive! Your help in the development of the project will be truly precious!


Join us for a few months and learn to live in a society very different from the one you grew up in.

You will have the opportunity to learn Portuguese and even a few words of Xitsua, the local language of the people. You will participate in the various activities of the project and you will help us to form new Christians and take them a little further in their life with Jesus!


Do you want to give your life to serve God and love your neighbor?

Are you ready to live in simplicity and sacrifice your comfort to start a new life on the other side of the world?

You have a strong spirit of service, patience, and you love people deeply?

Then you are welcome to join us in this adventure and participate in God's plan for this region!
