Our Story

True to our universal vocation of seeking God’s greater glory, we often find ourselves at the frontiers. Through faith in action, we advocate for those who are poorest and on the margins of our societies.

For us each culture is an opportunity to find God and everyone can collaborate by being a witness of the Good News. Today Jesuits are present in 34 Sub-Saharan African countries.

From the JCAM President

Rev. Fr. José MINAKU, S.J. is a Jesuit from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Our goal is to ensure that the Jesuit Conference of Africa and Madagascar (JCAM) is fully equipped to address the diverse challenges of our modern world. May the wind of hope, guided by the intercession of Mary, Our Mother and Saint Ignatius, inspire us to continue advancing in the mission of our Lord.
