BTJ4A is a benefit concert showcasing the musicians of tomorrow while saving the lives of children in Africa today. The main focus of BTJ4A is to provide food and education for the children of Africa through Joint Aid Management's (JAM) programs. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty, showcase the musicians of tomorrow and inspire millenials that it doesn't take much to make a difference.
JAM began in 1984 after its founder, Peter Pretorius, became stranded in an area called Pambarra in Mozambique. Peter was at a food distribution centre for 10 days without food or a change of clothes.
There was no food at the centre, only 34,000 starving people. Every day more than 30 people died and he helped bury them in shallow trench graves.
Broken by the reality of this suffering, Peter was filled with a resolve to feed and help as many people as possible. Now, more than two decades later, Joint Aid Management is making a difference to hundreds of thousands of lives in seven African countries: Angola, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan and Zimbabwe.
