JCAM Headquarters

The Jesuit Conference of Africa and Madagascar (JCAM) has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya

The following functions are undertaken by a small team referred to as “the secretariat” which is the administration of Conference works and support of the training of young Jesuits, financial administration for the Conference, integral development and project implementation, media and communications safeguarding education, and training, promoting social justice and ecology, and serving communities and those affected by HIV/AIDS.

Africama House

In October 2019 the JCAM secretariat moved from three different locations around Nairobi to a new purpose built centre – Africama House in the grounds of the JCAM St Ignatius Community in Nairobi. As well as bringing together for the first time all the JCAM secretariat staff the building also allows JCAM to welcome visitors and to host small meetings.

From Africama the staff supports the work of the common formation centres within the Conference as well as the Jesuit Historical Institute which is hosted by Hekima University College. The Jesuit Justice and Ecology Office, (JEO) and the African Jesuit Aids Network (AJAN) are now more closely integrated into the administrative work of JCAM with much improved sharing of resources, knowledge, and insight. The Jesuit Development Office (JDO) is based in Africama as, of course, are the offices of the President, his Socius, the Treasurer, Safeguarding, Communications, and other support staff.
