"Djumbai" in Guinea-Bissau Creole is a term to describe an informal gathering of people chatting with one another.
Djumbai and Dessert Nights are small, informal gatherings that provide a way for you to share the work that WAVS is doing to equip women and men with life-changing job skills in Guinea-Bissau with your friends, family, neighbors or coworkers.

2. INVITE YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS AND COWORKERS
Once you have a date and time set that works for you, think of a group of people you would like to reach out to. 6 to 20 people usually fit comfortably in a living room. There are all kinds of groups of people that might be interested: Your church group, neighbors, the game night crew, family, co-workers, civic or community club members, etc.
3. HAVE SOME TREATS TO SHARE
Djumbai is easy! And the dessert part can be easy, too. If you like baking – go for it! If not, don’t worry. A box of brownies is fast and easy, or pick up a tray of cookies at a local bakery or grocery store.
4. WE'LL DO THE REST
As you and your friends kick back in comfort of your living room with a cup of coffee and sweet treat, a WAVS staff member will share with you and your guests about who we are, what we do, and where we work. Depending on your set up, we can plug a computer to present from your TV, or bring a projector and present on a blank wall. We will share a 15-minute presentation and leave about 10 or 15 minutes for questions.
