For decades, organisations around the world, including JAM, have been working tirelessly to alleviate poverty in Africa. JAM has created its own movement for change, which is committed to making Africa a prosperous continent. However, there are still far too many destitute people in Africa and others who are dying of hunger and diseases exacerbated by poverty. The following article, which appeared on the BlouIn News Blog, looks at how, although Africa’s economy is steadily growing, poverty remains high and reports that the future seems bleak. JAM is calling on you to make a contribution towards the fight against poverty. JAM believes in the potential of joint forces, with the common goal of carving out a bright future for Africa.
