We work hard to receive the highest grades available for accountability and transparency.
As Africa’s largest indigenous non-governmental organisation, we know the challenges we must overcome across the continent, and how best to work to ensure an Africa that thrives.
In 2021, while Covid-19 was still raging across the world, we had a positive impact on the lives of 2.9-million people in Angola, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, South Africa and Uganda.
To do this work we need your donations. You can rest assured that every donation received, small or large, is celebrated and carefully managed. Each year we account to our cherished donors in our annual report. And now we present to you our 2021 report.
Our teams are the hands and feet touching the lives of more than 1.2 million beneficiaries daily in communities across Africa. JAM currently employs 455 staff members and thousands of volunteers from around the world and within the countries where we serve.
In the first quarter of 2017 the Angolan story was grim as the experience of the El Nino drought
had affected an estimated 1,42 million people including 756 000 children (UNICEF, 2017) after
poor rains in the previous year.
Aware of the increasing needs in South Sudan, we continued to pursue opportunities to assist more and more people, with an increased focus on partnerships throughout 2016. Our programme in South Africa grew significantly, reaching close to 100 000 children cared for. The highlight of the year was to see the crop of maize covering the entire farmlands at Pambara in Mozambique, a dream come true. Also to see the small commercial farms being developed for local Mozambique farmers, with full irrigation. This really is Africa’s tomorrow developing today.
We want to continue to reach more and more hungry children with food and the opportunity for an education. We want to continue to expand all of our programmes so that we can see Africa uplifted. We remain passionate about agricultural development, providing access to clean water, safe water and providing opportunities to women.
