Our
Approach

Jamma fully supports the Greenpeace mission to promote change that will create a healthier planet for future generations. Our funding is 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. 

Giving a voice to communities fighting for ocean protection.

Greenpeace endeavours to expose the actions of those damaging the ocean and champion science-backed solutions. Destructive fishing techniques are responsible for extensive damage to marine ecosystems and wildlife. A proposal from some world leaders to exclude fisheries from the Global Ocean Treaty threatens to maintain a status quo that is unsustainable in the long term.

“Our mission is to promote radical changes and new solutions to the ways we live on this planet so that we can all call it home for generations to come.”

“Protecting these natural wonders is simply the right thing to do. But this isn’t just about conscience. It’s about survival.” Greenpeace International

The Wellness Society was founded in 2017 with Jamma’s support to provide access to high quality self-help, therapy, and coaching tools designed for individuals and practitioners.

Jamma International's vision is the wellbeing of the planet and its people, and we feel passionate about supporting projects that will empower people to improve their wellbeing.

Hands with Sun Mental Wellbeing

Agneta Johansson, the Director of Wellbeing at Jamma International, has a vision to design and deliver Life Skills programmes to build capacity and resilience in both organisations and individuals.

Our initial project is 'The Brain, How it Creates our Reality and Our Behaviour', exploring how we become more resilient in every day life.

We know how to take care of our body but we know very little about how our brain works.  If you understand how the brain works, you have the ability to change your behaviour.

The first project in Life Skills being developed will focus on the brain, how it creates our reality and affects our behaviour. Not in a detailed scientific way, but in a way that can help us understand how little the brain has changed since cave men and how this can cause a lot of suffering in today's world. 

Our project will be a new approach to mental health. This knowledge about brain function and some basic skills on managing our tricky brain will be a foundation to manage our life in a more constructive day-to-day way.

It is in the brain that our lives are played out and where all our perception from the world is coming from. It is therefore very important to understand how the brain works, what is causing our mental struggle and how to take control.

 

We believe that when we understand how the brain influences our behaviour and why we sometimes feel the way we do, we can begin to take control and manage our emotions  to improve our thoughts and feelings.

Training for Life with Student Life have created a bespoke training package about Mental Health and Wellbeing, to be delivered as part of the RSHE curriculum for students in years 10 and 11.  The course consists of six sessions. The first four sessions cover mental health: what mental health is, the mental health continuum, depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders and the support we can get around these. Session five is a Coronavirus awareness session about remaining safe and responsible even as restrictions in the UK ease. Our final session will be a session about brain functioning, which has been developed using Jamma's Life Skills manual. The aim of this session is to increase understanding of brain processing, including the threat response, and explore how this understanding can be used to improve an individuals wellbeing.

Jamma chose to partner with Training for Life and Student Life as they share our vision to work in partnership with their audience.  The Life Skills programme will be designed and develop with the young people who will receive the training, they will ensure that the knowledge and skills are presented in a way that uses language and examples that are relevant to their age group.

This training will be piloted in August 2021 and deliver the full training in schools from September 2021. 

We share the vision to make the Life Skills programmes available to the widest possible audience, and following the delivery of the project in schools, we will work with Training for Life to develop this Life Skills programme into a training package for children, young people in other age groups and adults.

SIANA CONSERVANCY

Jamma International is partnering with WWF to support the development of the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies, located in the buffer zone around the Maasai Mara Reserve, ensuring both people and wildlife have the opportunities to benefit from this area’s development.

JAMMA INTERNATIONAL

Our
Approach

The Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies are located within wildlife areas near to the Maasai Mara Reserve and are part of important migration routes. The conservancies are home to thousands of people. 


Together with WWF-Kenya, Jamma is working to ensure that the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies act as a catalyst for local sustainable development, and positively influence the lives of Siana and Oloisukut residents. Our support of the project began in 2015 and we are continuing to support WWF in creating sustainable models that can scale.

Supporting spaces where wildlife and people can coexist.

Land fragmentation is a major conservation challenge. This, among other things, results in increased human-wildlife conflict incidents that are attributed to competition for natural resources. WWF-Kenya, supported by Jamma, is working closely with local communities to realise the benefits of conserving this critical resource through sustainable rangeland management.

Our main focus within the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies is business and enterprise development, supporting local individuals within the community to help expand opportunities that communities can get involved in and use to support themselves sustainably.

By developing the conservancies’ infrastructure and governance, establishing wildlife monitoring and law enforcement, and supporting community land rights and alternative sources of income, this project can ensure the Siana and Oloisukut  Conservancies are benefiting people and wildlife alike.

Resource Africa is an international charity with the mission of ensuring that the basic human right to sustainable use of wildlife and natural resources can be exercised by communities and rural people in southern Africa.

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

Sustainably protecting Africa’s vast wild parks is something that we at Jamma take very seriously.

Our
Approach

Parfuri, at the far north of the Kruger National Park, is one of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes, where wildlife including elephant, buffalo, and big cats roam free across a transfrontier park that spans three countries. Pafuri is one of South Africa's top birding locations with more than 450 species recorded. 

RETURNAfrica partners with local communities to develop, market and manage high quality visitor and safari experiences at iconic destinations in Southern Africa in a way that benefits all. 

Partnerships that return benefits to the land and all it sustains.

RETURNAfrica works with local communities to create meaningful and sustainable benefits. They provide employment, training and skills development for community members and make direct financial contributions to projects which respond to a range of pressing needs. Eco-friendly amenities and skills development all play their part in nurturing the environment and improving lives. RETURNAfrica’s projects are carefully selected and responsibly governed. Offering unique visitor experiences, RETURNAfrica’s ethos focuses on making local partnerships work for conservation and development.

RETURNAfrica is a safari lodge operator engaging local communities and communal land-dwellers to commercialise rights held by them, and thereby securing the success of local conservation initiatives.

“When you reach the edge of the map and settle into this peaceful corner of Africa, it’s good to know that you are supporting a sustainable form of tourism, one that shows humans and wildlife can share the wilderness, for the benefit of both.” - RETURNAfrica

RETURNAfrica operates a safari lodge and two trail camps in Pafuri located in the most northern part of the Kruger National Park, South Africa. After having been driven away from the area at gunpoint in the 1960s the Makuleke people do now, as a result of the South African land restitution process, own the land with freehold title.

Despite this, they continue to live in three villages some 60 km away from Parfuri. Through RETURNAfrica Jamma funds a Drop-in Centre in each village where disadvantaged children can go after school to get a cooked meal and be assisted with their homework. These centres cater for approximately 450 children each day.

KHOMANI SAN SCHOOL

When the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park was created during the 1930s, the livelihoods and freedom of movement of some of South Africa’s last remaining first peoples, the Khomani San, were curtailed. The new park was fenced in and the inhabitants driven away from their ancestral land. Wildlife was better cared for than people.

Khomani San Bushmen School

JAMMA INTERNATIONAL

Our
Approach

In 1999, the Khomani San community was given ownership of a number of farms outside the small settlement Andriesvale where most of them lived at the time. They also secured access and use rights to some areas inside what is now the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Jamma works with this neglected community to run their own primary school preparing children for life in a diverse school environment while ensuring that traditional knowledge and skills are transferred to the younger generations, enabling the way of life for the Khomani San to continue to develop in today's demanding society.

The holistic Khomani San school programme aims to integrate an up to date curriculum with traditional knowledge to give these children the very best of both and provide them with the life skills and cultural dignity they have missed for so long. 

In an early intervention, Jamma assisted the Khomani San to stock up one of their farms, the 5,000-hectare Erin, with wildlife and turn it into a successful commercial game harvesting business. 

Uplifting communities and providing cultural dignity for future generations.

Gemsbok Kalahari Khomani San

The Khomani San are one of the last remaining groups of the indigenous San people of South Africa. During the creation of the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, much of their movement as hunter-gatherers on their traditional land was curtailed and many members of the community were dispersed. In 1995, the Khomani San lodged a claim for the restitution of their ancestral land, and in 1999, they were granted ownership over a number of farms nearby the settlement of Andriesvale and adjacent to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

Establishing a junior school where children can receive culturally sensitive good education will enable them to enter senior school equipped to succeed.

“We aim to provide an accessible, culturally sensitive primary school education to the Khomani San children. By integrating an up to date curriculum with traditional knowledge, we help to uplift the community by empowering future generations.” - Claire Barry, Khomani San School Programme

The vision of Jamma International is the wellbeing of the planet and its people, we feel passionate about supporting projects that will empower people to improve their wellbeing. We know how to take care of our body but we know very little about how our brain works. If you understand how the brain works, you have the ability to change your behaviour. The first project in Life Skills being developed will focus on the Brain, how it creates our reality and affects our behaviour.

JAMMA INTERNATIONAL

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 International is partnering with WWF to support the development of the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies, located on the north-eastern boundary of the Maasai Mara Reserve.

Our work ensures that the conservancy not only secures a vital wildlife corridor for the migration of elephants and wildebeest, but also acts as a catalyst for local sustainable development, and positively influences the lives of Siana residents.

Our

For many young creatives, a lack of financial resources, opportunities or network connections mean that a career in their chosen industry is out of reach. The Photography Foundation believes that talent and motivation should be more important than who you know, or where you come from, and it’s their mission to make that a reality.

Through training programmes and community outreach, they remove barriers to entry and open up photography careers by welcoming in the next generation of diverse creative talent. Jamma is proud to support Shoreditch-based The Photography Foundation to help make society a little more equal for tomorrow’s creative visionaries.

Making society a little more equal for tomorrow’s creatives.

Over the course of three months, The Photography Foundation’s trainees are given the tools and education they need to develop the foundational technical skills for a career in photography. Through professional training from industry teachers and hands-on workshops with creative experts, trainees learn the basics, as well as finding the freedom and inspiration to develop their own creative voice.

“This is a place where young people can find inspiration, technical knowledge and an understanding of the creative industry, in a space that offers them the freedom to experiment and find their creative voice.” - Jess Bonham, Photographer

“We may hail from different countries, backgrounds and industries but we have one important thing in common: we all want to make society a little more equal, and we think the Foundation is one way to do that.” The Photography Foundation

Jamma's support for The Wellness Society began at the launch stages in 2017 when founder Rebecca Marks established an online platform with the purpose of making self-help and mental health resources and tools available to a wider audience.


The wellbeing of communities and individuals across the planet is something that we here at Jamma feel very strongly about. Life is complex, and we all have many more challenges to deal with in today’s fast-paced world. What if there was a fast, straightforward and easy way to access tools and resources to help us cope with our responses to the pressures of modern life?

High quality self-help tools, available to all.

The Wellness Society is a social enterprise that sets out to bridge the gap for people who find long-term private therapy unaffordable yet are reluctant or unable to get help from overstretched mental health services. By providing a range of targeted self-help tools and resources for individuals, coaches and private practitioners, The Wellness Society delivers accessible, affordable support to manage mental health difficulties, anxiety and stress.

“Fortunately research shows that self-help tools are often enough for people to overcome mild to moderate mental health difficulties without professional support.” - The Wellness Society

The Wellness Society’s mission to make self-help resources easily accessible to individuals and practitioners was something that resonated strongly with Jamma International, and we were pleased to support this project through its launch stages.

At Jamma, we believe that everyone should have access to the support networks and skills that help to secure their own positive and rewarding futures. We are proud to be supporting the work of Oakleaf Enterprise to help their clients with the skills, training and confidence to manage their mental health and return to work.



The wellbeing of communities is something that is extremely important to us at Jamma. With Oakleaf Enterprise, we were able to support mental health within our home county of Surrey. At Jamma, we look for forward-thinking organisations who bring an innovative mindset to the issues they face. For more than 25 years - long before mental health was so widely understood - Oakleaf has been focused on supporting some of the most vulnerable adults in the Surrey community to find a road to recovery from mental illness.

Working tirelessly to transform futures for adults and young people.

At Jamma, we believe in seeding growth and supporting change in the organisations we partner with. Through our funding, we were able to support a Fundraising and Partnerships position for Oakleaf Enterprise, enabling the organisation to move forward and generate momentum with their work with communities and supporters.

The Jamma-funded Fundraising and Partnerships position has resulted in an increase of publicity, support and funding for the organisation. It has also led to the strengthening of relationships between corporate and community groups and doubling the income of previous years while growing the positive reputation of the charity.

We are proud to support the forward-thinking work of Oakleaf Enterprise and work with them to develop their expertise with new partnerships, generating momentum during challenging times. They pride themselves in restoring confidence and a sense of purpose for their clients within our home county.
