JAM’s Water and Sanitation programme started in 2001 to provide a critical and sustainable response to the 325 million Africans without access to clean water. Our multi-stage approach includes the pivotal steps of community training on water use, improved sanitation, and maintenance and community development.
We have brought water and hope to hundreds of thousands of people in South Africa, South Sudan, Angola, Mozambique, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. We have drilled thousands of wells and will continue to drill thousands more with the dedication of our team and the tireless commitment of our donors.
Drilling, installing and rehabilitating wells is a gruelling undertaking and our 20-strong team, drawn from throughout Africa, is an embodiment of JAM’s vision of Helping Africa help itself.
So much more than just a source of life-giving water, a well is an investment in the future of a community and benefits thousands of people daily. JAM works efficiently to ensure it keeps its operational costs low to reach as many vulnerable villages as possible.
