About Us

Joint Aid Management (JAM) was founded by Peter and Ann Pretorius in 1984. We are an African-founded and headquartered, Christian international humanitarian relief and development organisation currently operating in Angola, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, South Sudan, Uganda and Sierra Leone.

Since our inception, JAM has progressed as an organisation that reflects strong, expansive development. For more than three decades we have grown into an organisation that affects sustainable change though providing programmes to children who need support and communities that need help. Serving Africa is what defines us. We do not discriminate in terms of race, religion, gender, or political persuasion.

Serving Africa is Not What We Do, But Who We Are.

Hunger and malnutrition continue to be two of the major contributing causes of death in African children. Health, school attendance and school performance are adversely affected, leaving these children at a great disadvantage in life. We cannot rest while children and families suffer!

JAM already provides nutrient-rich meals to over one million beneficiaries across Africa. Our school feeding programmes are focused to not only improve the nutrition of each child but to also encourage school attendance and education.



An Africa that thrives.


To provide food security, nutrition, water and sanitation to vulnerable communities in Africa in dignified and sustainable ways


To eradicate hunger, poverty and malnutrition in Africa.
