Feeding a child works miracles

About Us

What we do

JAM SA has been serving disadvantaged communities in South Africa since 2005. At the end of 2015, JAM SA was supporting more than 1 700 Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres. JAM SA operates in seven provinces in South Africa: Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Northern Cape, Limpopo and North West.

Through partnerships with various organisations and donors, JAM SA feeds over 84 000 children every school day. As part of measuring our impact and ensuring we continue to remain effective, as of January 2014, JAM SA introduced nutritional assessments to measure the impact of our programmes.

JAM History

JAM, a South African founded non-profit relief and development organisation with 30 years' experience in relief and sustainable development.

Our programmes focus on food security, micronutrient intervention, assistance to orphans and vulnerable children, the provision of water and sanitation, skills development, community-based agricultural development, and school infrastructure development.

Vision and 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 SA 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.

You too can become part of the solution in Africa by partnering with us to change lives and make a difference to the many disadvantaged communities across Africa.
