Position

ZRDF WINS FIRST PRIZE

The Mkushi Agricultural and Commercial Show Society (MACSS) is back, bigger and better! After two years of cancelling the event due to the Covid -19 pandemic. This year’s theme was “Innovation through Technology”.

During this year's Central Province Agricultural and Commercial Show presented by the Mkushi Agricultural and Commercial Show Society (MACSS), Zambian Rainbow Development Foundation (ZRDF) demonstrated its understanding of this year's theme by showcasing the interventions in Climate Smart Agriculture that are taught to local farmers in Mkushi at the various Demo sites.

The event ended with ZRDF scooping first position in the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) category for their work around climate smart agriculture innovations. Their work is getting recognition and this makes Jamma International proud and confident to keep supporting ZRDF in serving the vulnerable and underprivileged in society.

Jamma fully agrees with Greenpeace’s mission to promote change that will create a healthier planet for future generations. Last month, we started supporting Greenpeace’s ‘Protect the Oceans’ campaign, which is dedicated to addressing the significant threats facing our oceans, including climate change, overfishing, plastic pollution, and mining.

SUPPORTING THE MCC PROJECT

Jamma recently started supporting a new and interesting project known as the Morally Contested Conservation project, which is looking at morally contested issues affecting the sub-Saharan African people.

The project has since brought four students on board in collaboration with Cornell university, Oxford university, WWF Germany, and other sub-Saharan African partners. The students have been collecting various data on the moral attitudes, beliefs, and policy preferences regarding critical issues in conservation and development and identifying key points of divergence and convergence between rural and urban communities in several sub-Saharan African countries and internationally.

Some of the key questions the project will look at are as follows:

Who gets to make decisions over the sub-Saharan African wildlife and the people? What should successful conservation look like? Whose interests should take priority? How much harm should rural Africans bear in protecting wild animals and their habitats? Are local people part of the problem or part of the solution? Is it acceptable to remove people from their land to create space for wildlife? Which are more important, the rights of local people or the rights of individual animals?

Awareness Week

News & Insights

This week is 2021's Mental Health Awareness Week, with connecting to nature as the theme.

"Nature is so central to our psychological and emotional health, that it’s almost impossible to realise good mental health for all without a greater connection to the natural world. For most of human history, we lived as part of nature. It is only in the last five generations that so many of us have lived and worked in a context that is largely separated from nature. And it is only since a 1960s study in the US found that patients who were treated in hospitals with a view of nature recovered faster, that science has started to unpack the extraordinary health benefits." - Mental Health Foundation

Here at Jamma, we clearly see the link between the wellbeing of people and the wellbeing of our planet. We have supported and worked in many partnerships with mental wellbeing organisations to ensure people have the rights to secure their own mental and physical wellbeing.

SUPPORTING GREENPEACE

Greenpeace is a movement of people passionate about achieving their vision of a greener, healthier planet. By lobbying, campaigning, and educating the public, Greenpeace helps enact real change on a global scale.

Jamma fully agrees with Greenpeace's mission to promote change that will create a healthier planet for future generations. Last month, we started supporting Greenpeace’s ‘Protect the Oceans’ campaign, which is dedicated to addressing the significant threats facing our oceans, including climate change, overfishing, plastic pollution, and mining.

The Global Ocean Treaty, currently in negotiation at the United Nations, has the potential to create ocean sanctuaries that will protect at least 30% of our seas by 2030. Greenpeace is helping to bolster the positions of world leaders championing for the Global Ocean Treaty, as well as engaging potential new champions. A global network of ocean sanctuaries is a crucial step in protecting large parts of the ocean from destructive industries, especially in largely unregulated international waters.
