A Great Charity Doing Great Works
JAM (Joint Aid Management) 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.
 
JAM provides highly nutritious meals to nearly a million African children every school day. Diet and  nutrition play a critical role in the physical and intellectual development of children. Their school feeding  programmes enable them to improve the well being of each child, while promoting and enhancing school  attendance and education. Beneficiaries receive a serving of a Fortified Blended Food each school day,  which provides them with approximately 75% of the recommended daily allowance of protein. Teacher  training and infrastructure are implemented to compliment the feeding programme and create  environments conducive to education. Through daily feeding through schools, clinics and welfare programmes, they hope to ultimately enhance the future role of these children in society.  
 
JAM currently assists around 1.1 million beneficiaries daily through its Nutritional Feeding programme and wider community development activities. Their vision is to transform African communities by developing viable social enterprise and to empower Africans to create better lives for themselves. 
 
         
 
 
Fish and Chip Night
 
We had a great night of fun and fellowship, celebrating Burns Night with several contributions of Scottish  poetry, songs and other traditional fun. Everyone enjoyed a somewhat less than traditional but still very Scottish Chippy Tea, with everyone's suppers going down a treat.
 
Many thanks to everyone who arranged a great night, performed and came along and supported the event.
