The Deborah Business Education Hub

DWIB Collective

The purpose of the Deborah Women in Business Collective (DWIB Collective)  is to strengthen, nurture, encourage and grow Christian women in self-sustaining business projects and opportunities. Deborah Women in Business Collective Chapters are run in various developing countries. The heart behind each DWIB Collective Chapter is to champion women to build a microbusiness that will generate income to support the needs of their family and also sow into the needs of their community. 

There are many wonderful benefits to microbusiness which include:

> Microbusiness can provide products and services tailored to locals.

> Microbusiness can occupy otherwise vacant storefronts/land and provide places for neighbors to meet.

> Microbusiness can stimulate an inflow of community resources.

> Microbusiness can provide role models and support for future entrepreneurs.

The inaugural Chapter of the DWIB Collective is with the beautiful women of the Katunda Pentecostal Assembly of God, located in Katunda Village, Jinja, Uganda. We are excited to see what God will do in and through His Mighty Deborahs of the Katunda PAOG.

Deborah of the Bible (Judges 4 and 5) was one who received fresh mandates from heaven, and though she knew how evil the oppression of King Jabin was, she also knew that with God anything is possible!. Something in Deborah knew how to pull on the resources of heaven, stand in the counsels of the Lord (Jeremiah 23) and open her mouth and let Him fill it (Psalm 81:10). 

The DWIB Collective Chapters are made up of Mighty Deborahs who have a desire to live a business life of passionate pursuit and purpose wrapped in His presence. 

CHRIST-CENTRED BUSINESS EDUCATION

Katunda PAOG Chapter

The Katunda PAOG DWIB Collective Chapter serves and impacts the Katunda Village community (and surrounding communities) through self-sustaining business projects, including projects which provide financial support and practical care for the widows and orphans. 

A portion of the income generated from the Chapter aids the ongoing work of the Barnabas Legacy Children’s Dream Foundation. The BLCD Foundation is a legally registered Ugandan Not for Profit Organisation. BLCDF is a Christian Child Care Ministry that looks after 250+ vulnerable, orphaned and needy children in Katunda Village, Jinja, Kampala. The Foundation was founded in 2013 by Pastor Steven Wamala and a team from Katunda Pentocostal AOG, Buikwe District, located in Katunda Village. 

In 2020, the Katanda PAOG and the Barnabas Legacy Children’s Dream Foundation invited the Women ECHO Him Collective to run a Deborah Conference for it’s women and a program for its children. Due to COVID19 restrictions, the Conference and Children’s Program could not be held in person and instead were held virtually. 

Throughout August 2020 and 2021 the women (in a number of small groups, due to COVID19 restrictions) attended the Deborah Microbusiness Foundations Conference where they learned about 5+U Pillars of Business Built on a Firm Foundation of Christ; business principles that are important in starting and growing faith filled microbusinesses. The women also explored the life of Deborah through Bible devotion time.

The Chapter would value your ongoing support in prayer, business project ideas, financial input and championing them in growing as business women.

Shalom Nagar Chapter (Siliguri)


The second DWIB Collective Chapter started in October 2021, with a small number of women that live in the Leprosy Colony Community in Matigara, Siliguru (
Siliguru is in the North West of India). I (Maree) had the privilege of meeting some of the community when I visited in 2013.

This chapter includes girls and women who live in a Leprosy Colony (based on the outskirts of Siliguri). Some of the girls and women have leprosy themselves, others are wives, daughters, mothers who are carers of those with leprosy.

DBEH has become a partner of SHALOM NAGAR, an incredible God-breathed ministry founded by local Magdelene Rai who lives in Siliguri. Magdelene’s passion is to bring the Matigara community up from their current situation through sharing the love of Christ; Magdelene and a small team of volunteers help guide the youth and children, buy medicine for the disease and support the families through food and clothing.

One of the first projects of the Chapter will be a small garden area where vegetables can be planted, to help with the food supply and to also sell some of the surplus. Initially, the chapter has started with the purchase of some wholesale jewellery items, which are being sold from a market stand.

If you would like to be involved in the DWIBC Shalom Nagar Chapter (Siliguri) through prayer and support please do email us at thedeborahconference@gmail.com

Due to respecting the privacy and dignity of those who are in the Leprosy Colony there are only a limited number of photos that can be shared publicly. Instead of a public Facebook page there is a private Facebook group you can join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/4237412956387767
