Operation Jumpstart Association NPC is a grant maker which was formed back in 1992.

After the commencement of the National Lottery OJA shifted focus away from educational and community structures to the provision of infrastructure for charity organisations.

“The main objective of Operation Jumpstart Association NPC is to alleviate human suffering through the support of various projects and the provision of resources and services (registered as public benefit organisations) within the Province of KwaZulu-Natal”.

We believe that local people are in the best position to identify their own needs and find the best solutions to their problems. We offer assistance in the form of premises in which to operate.

We have involved in the building of more than 100 community structures. 39 are currently occupied by our beneficiary organisations.

The KZN Lotto ran successfully for five years (1992 – 1996), during which time a significant amount of funds was accrued for charitable donation.

Operation Jumpstart Association was established to manage these funds and identify opportunities within the province to contribute to worthy causes, initially with focus on grass-roots educational facilities including school classrooms, creches and adult education centres.

Since its inception in 1992, Operation Jumpstart Association (OJA) is proud to have been associated with many projects which have improved the lives of the individuals and communities in the province.
