JAM has identified agricultural development as one of the highest priorities for long-term sustainable development, as we realize our vision of Helping Africa help itself. The implementation of agricultural programs differ from country to country, and is dependent on the context, geography, community perceptions and stage of development in a particular region or country.
In Mozambique, which is ripe for agricultural development, JAM has established a large demonstration farm that serves as an example and training center for community farmers. JAM drives the establishment of school gardens to provide students with a living laboratory in Mozambique and Angola, in addition to providing some complementary food items for their school feeding program.
In South Sudan, agricultural development is a means to improve community cohesion, and development through a series of interventions. In South Africa, JAM works in conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture to provide community farmers with training and inputs to improve existing practices and generate household income.
