About Us

Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA) is the Island’s official aid agency, funded by the Government of Jersey.

Since its establishment in 1968, Jersey Overseas Aid has worked to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted by poverty, conflict, disease and natural disasters.

A small island off the coast of France has built schools and clinics on six continents, provided emergency food and shelter in the rubble of hundreds of earthquakes and airstrikes, given hope and dignity to millions of hungry, sick and displaced people and instigated long-term change, helping people in some of the poorest countries in the world to become independent, through highly effective international development programmes.

Meet the Team

JOA is managed by a small team of professional staff and is governed by a Commission appointed by the States of Jersey.
