JAM Angola was established in 1991 at the height of the civil war initially providing relief feeding. JAM then established a food production facility in the province and started producing food for a WFP supported school feeding programme across the province and went on to feed more than 220,000, primary school children, daily in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Currently, JAM with the local Government provides school meals to students in the Benguela and Kwanza-Sul provinces and works in Malnutrition Clinics across the country to address Severe and Acute Malnutrition amongst infants, children, and pregnant or lactating women.

 JAM established operations in Rwanda in 1994 immediately after the genocide, initially providing relief.

In 1998, thanks to support from Life Outreach International, JAM established the Fred Nkundla Life Centre (FNLC) to care for children orphaned by the genocide.

Since then the FNLC has integrated hundreds of orphans back into their families and communities and has transitioned the FNLC into a vocational skill and training centre that provides instruction in welding, hairdressing, culinary arts, masonry, and carpentry, with female students also encouraged to study in male-dominated fields. Students are also taught French, English, mathematics, entrepreneurship, and computer literacy.

JAM works with South Sudanese refugees in partnership with the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) in Refugee camps in the North West region of Uganda including Imvepi, Lobule Rhino, and Moyo.

There we provide training on agriculture and start-up kits to develop their own food gardens that families use for diet diversification having previously lived on the maize and soy rations provided. Most are able to sell the surplus harvest to fellow refugees and host communities as a source of income.

In addition, we provide sanitation and hygiene kits to assist with general health and well-being.

JAM South Sudan was established in 2002 providing food, and water for many who were desperate and displaced during the civil war. JAM’s interventions here have grown rapidly due to the extremely dire needs of its people. We are now a primary distribution partner to the World Food Programme in this region.

Due to the nature of the environment, our team responds to humanitarian emergencies as a result of the conflict and natural disasters suffered by this country.

Current Programme Interventions:

**Livelihood seasonal responses lasting on average 3 months for each season (Dry and wet season). They are projects targeted at the relatively stable parts of South Sudan. The projects mainly include the distribution of seeds and tools and fishing kits.

JAM South Africa was established in 2004 to provide school meals to South African students.  In 2008, when the South African Government took over school feeding, JAM started providing meals to pre-school students instead.

The pre-school feeding programme has since developed into a holistic Early Childhood Development (ECD) programme including teacher training, infrastructure development, and feeding. Today JAM SA provides daily meals to around 120,000 pre-school students across Gauteng, Eastern, and Western Cape, KZN, and Limpopo.

JAM Mozambique was established in 1984 to tackle poverty and starvation head-on, during the war where so many starved to death. Over time JAM began school-feeding with the assistance of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

JAM currently has a focus on using goods grown in and around the schools to supplement and diversify children’s diets and also has a food Factory in Beira that uses local produce to manufacture the Corn Soya Blend (CSB) used in our school feeding programme. This factory received ISO 22000 Certification which means international recognition of operational excellence and food safety methods and most important-the children we serve are receiving the quality they deserve.

Due to the nature of the environment, our team responds to humanitarian emergencies as a result of conflict and natural disasters suffered by this country.
