JENA works towards a just, poverty free and ecologically regenerative Africa where people can unlock their full potential, free from direct, cultural, and structural violence.
The JENA Secretariat supports affiliates, their partners, and allies to coordinate their work in advocacy and campaigns, and humanitarian and development work with the intent to challenge and achieve positive change.
Spells out our ambition for the next five years to contribute to the fight against the injustice of poverty.
Our strategic plan which runs from 2019 to 2023, seeks to build on the gains made so far in making our own contribution to various efforts to reduce poverty in Africa. Further, we endeavour to ensure that those who emerge out of poverty do so permanently and achieve sustainable wellbeing.
Guided by our preferential option for the poor, in our efforts we will make every effort to find ways to reach the extremely poor people living at the edge of survival.
The JENA Strategic Plan 2019-2023 is built around six thematic areas of strategic focus.
We recognize that:
- Governance and Inclusive Political Participation.
- Rethinking African Development.
- Peace, Security and Sustainable Development.
- Responsible Business & Corporate Accountability.
- Domestic Resource Mobilisation.
- Climate Justice and Sustainable Food.
Pay by bank transfer
If you wish to make a donation by direct bank transfer please contact Fr Paul Hamill SJ email@example.com. Fr Paul will get in touch with you about the best method of transfer for you and share account details with you. Donations can be one-off gifts or of any frequency; for example, you might wish to become a regular monthly donor of small amounts; that sort of reliable income can allow for very welcome forward planning in the development of the Society’s works in Africa and Madagascar.
Often it is easier to send a donation to an office within your own country and Fr Paul can advise on how that might be done. In some countries this kind of giving can also be recognised for tax relief and the necessary receipts will be issued.
