#JAMSACommunityOfHope or #HopeInARedBowl
Established in 2005, as an affiliate of JAM International, JAM SA came about to address our country’s unique needs in our parallel first and third world economies. With a focus on preschool children, where some 78% of these children do not receive adequate nutrition, and 27% are stunted, JAM's daily bowl of highly nutritious food provides for approximately 75% of their required daily nutrients. It is JAM’s belief that hungry children cannot learn and without education, there can be no development. We feed approximately 120 000 children in pre-schools across all nine provinces in South Africa, increasing food security and enabling learning. Our programmes meet the immediate needs of malnutrition and address development through multi-level training and extensive agricultural programmes as well.
