Organisation Profile


JAM South Africa is a proudly South African organisation, dedicated to helping vulnerable children and communities across South Africa. Passionate about what we do, we will not rest until we realise a South Africa without vulnerable people.

Children deserve a better future!

A sad statistic of our home country is that approximately two million children go to bed hungry each night,78% of preschool children are undernourished, and 27% of preschool children are stunted.Hungry children lack the vital nutrients necessary for their physical and cognitive development, which can be devastating for their future: 90% of a child’s brain development happens before the age of five, and adequate nutrition is critical for mental growth.

Without it, the scars of stunting follow a child and affect their prospects for health, learning and success throughout their lives.

Nutrition is the foundation for our children to achieve their potential in the future. We feed children in pre-schools and assist the surrounding communities, increasing food security by empowering families and individuals. Our programmes meet the immediate needs of malnutrition, and address development through multi-level training and extensive agricultural programmes.
