Our
Approach

Jamma is supporting Resource Africa to bring a voice to these communities and tell the story of how the equilibrium of sustainable wildlife management and guardianship can be supported and maintained.



Many rural people in southern Africa share their daily life with wildlife. Unfortunately this can negatively impact on those communities, with elephants breaking through boundaries, marauding and eating vital crops, lions and leopards killing livestock and, in the worst cases, wild animals injuring or even killing people.

Respecting rights, resources and livelihoods.

At Jamma we support Resource Africa to engage these communities as co-dependents in conservation and in the benefits that can be derived from it. Sustainable, community-based wildlife management and enterprise can benefit not only the rural communities and their future generations, but also help to conserve and support Africa’s wildlife habitats and ecosystems.

An important part of our work with Resource Africa is to advocate for dialogue and connection between the perspectives of local communities with policy making processes at international, regional and national levels.

It is our experience that policy is most likely to lead to sustainable environmental management when it strengthens the rights and enhances the livelihoods and wellbeing of those immediately dependent upon it.
Jamma is currently looking for an office-based intern to support our existing projects through their technical and research skills.
Press Release

Jamma Internship: Open for Application

In Sub-Saharan Africa, conservation is morally contested. This project explores some of the most important and contentious issues around conservation and sustainable use that are affecting people in Sub-Saharan Africa, where there appear to be major rifts between local and external moral worldviews. Jamma International is supporting this project in collaboration with the University of Oxford, Cornell University, and WWF Germany. The focus of this project is primarily on conservation areas in sub-Saharan Africa.

Morally Contested Conservation

Jamma has been working together with Ten for Zen’s founders to develop a programme plan of new resources to provide free, easy-to-access information to help people across the UK live a more mindful life. Jamma’s mission is to develop a Life Skills programme and to ensure that these skills can be part of anyone’s daily self-care, building resilience and improving mental health and wellbeing.

In partnership with Ten for Zen we have built a plan to deliver an extensive array of tools to enable anyone, anywhere to experience the positive benefits of understanding how your mind works.
