JAM continues to witness African communities being decimated by hunger and malnutrition, as a result of abject poverty that afflicts millions of people on the continent. Hunger and malnutrition are also the main cause of child deaths and presents a major barrier to these children gaining an education.
JAM was created in response to a devastating famine caused by a civil war that placed nearly four million Mozambicans at risk of starvation in 1984. Thirty years later, our intervention has expanded to not only provide immediate hunger relief to millions of African people but to also roll out innovative interventions that promote education, social and economic development.
Malnutrition kills more African children than HIV/AIDS, Malaria and TB combined. Our school feeding programmes are focused on young children – enabling us to improve the wellbeing of each child while encouraging greater school attendance and education.
