Feeding a child works miracles

About JAM

JAM is an International Christian-based humanitarian relief and development organisation, founded in Africa in 1984.

JAM's primary commitment is the fight against hunger and malnutrition in Africa. Each year we provide millions of nutritious meals to thousands of hungry children through our Nutritional Feeding Programme. To complement feeding initiatives, JAM has adopted a holistic approach to development through our Complete Community Development Approach (CCDA), which has seen us develop and implement Water and Sanitation and Agricultural Development Programmes. These programmes are sustainably designed to produce results and change in the battle against water and food insecurity, and thus achieving JAM’s vision of Helping Africa Help Itself.

Vision & Mission

JAM is an eyewitness to heartbreaking situations in Africa and our work revolves around our vision of HELPING AFRICA HELP ITSELF.

Our core mission is to empower Africans to create better lives for themselves. This is to help facilitate sustainable development in Africa.



JAM has been able to reach thousands more beneficiaries through our programmes thanks to the loyal support of a number of private donors and organisations including churches, non-profit organisations and foundations, local and international corporates, and schools.
