About JACC:

The Jerusalem African Community Center (R.A), incorporated as an NGO in 2014, is a community-based organization led jointly by Israeli and African activists in Jerusalem. The JACC promotes quality of life and overall well-being for African migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in Jerusalem. We also seek to foster community leadership and facilitate dialogue and neighborly relations between residents of the city. This takes place through provision of personalized assistance and support, education and rights awareness, programs for children and families and humanitarian aid. The JACC builds on and enhances the work of a grassroots initiative operating in Jerusalem since 2007. Since that time, this exclusively volunteer-run initiative has assisted hundreds of individuals through language courses, cultural activities, education about rights and provision of practical, psycho-social and humanitarian aid.
