How We Do This
JAM is an eyewitness to heartbreaking situations in Africa. We work within communities that suffer from severe hunger and malnutrition both of which are a direct result of the abject poverty that afflicts millions. Hunger and malnutrition continues to be the major contributing cause of death for children and a major barrier to gaining an education in Africa. JAM was founded in the ashes of a devastating famine caused by civil war that placed nearly four million innocent Mozambicans at risk of imminent starvation in 1984.
Thirty years later, JAM’s Nutritional Feeding programmes have developed to provide not only relief from starvation to impoverished Africans, but as well as innovative interventions designed to promote education, social and economic development.
JAM provides nutrient-rich meals to over one million beneficiaries in Angola, South Africa, South Sudan, Sierra Leone and Mozambique. Our school feeding programmes are primarily focused on young children – this approach enables us to improve the well being of each child, while promoting and enhancing school attendance and education.
