This is the story of Matthew, a young boy from Angola who almost died from malnutrition.

Joint Aid Management (JAM) is a South African founded registered non-profit humanitarian organisation that has been expanding its expertise in relief and sustainable development in Africa since 1984. 

Its programmes, which are based on a Complete Community Development Assistance (CCDA) model, include nutritional interventions, school feeding, assistance to orphans and vulnerable children, the provision of water and sanitation, skills development, community training on agricultural development, income generation and HIV/AIDS projects.

The “Help JAM Make it Real Campaign” shows the positive results of JAM’s programmes, but highlights how, without you, the donor, the positive results are merely make believe. It is YOU that can help JAM Make It Real. You are the fundamental tool in helping children and communities in our beneficiary countries (South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, South Sudan and Rwanda) create a better life for themselves.

Our school feeding programme reaches 690 000 children improving the well-being of each of them, while serving as motivation for school attendance for those who do not get sufficient, if any nutrition at home.
