Jam for Brunch on a charitable mission

GABORONE, BOTSWANA — In 2014, two Batswana women; namely Basadi Dibeela and Zandile Rammekwa came together and conceptualize an event aptly inspired by the growing global trend of day food events. 

After the first event the duo were joined by a third party; Game Bantsi (Zeus) who recognized their vision and five (5) years later their brand, JAM FOR BRUNCH has grown in leaps and bounds and continues to influence the Botswana lifestyle scene. 

Hosted every first Sunday of each month, Jam for Brunch is still cooking up a storm five years down the line and all the credit goes out to Batswana’s newly found love for food and appreciation of live music. 


The event has now seen the need to give back and get in touch with its community. According to a communiqué from the organizers, this year Jam for Brunch will be making concerted efforts to engage in Corporate Social Investment (CSI). 

“‘Jamming for Good’ is a concept that reassures Batswana that the event is here to stay and is aware that doing good business is good business; Over the years, JFB has worked with different NGOs in Botswana including Nayang Association- Shoes for Soles, SOS Children’s Village, Dare to Dream and Sir Ketumile Masire Foundation to help contribute and mobilize their various social causes.”

Furthermore, the communique explained, “Jamming for Good’s first official solo challenge, is helping to donate school shoes to the students of Nxaranga Primary School in Maun. Jam for Brunch had its first event outside of Gaborone in December 2018 and they wanted to help contribute a small part to the Maun community. The Jamming for Good shoe drive is collecting 120 pairs of shoes for the students of the satellite school.”

“We are appealing to our jammers to help us realize this dream and help keep feet warm this Winter by donating school shoes,” Zandile Rammekwa, Jam for Brunch Co-Founder.

Jam for Brunch’s success has been owed greatly to its attendees who have helped grow the brand into a household name and they are now appealing to them to help raise awareness and help make a difference for the lives of young Batswana, one step at time. Jamming for Good will become a more regular occurrence with JFB taking on different social causes with the help of NGOs and the general public.

The Jamming for Good Shoe drive will benefit 120 students in Maun. Those who wish to donate to the cause are urged to go to their nearest Pep Store and buy a voucher for school shoes and drop off the Vouchers at Webtickets Riverwalk. The school shoes will be delivered in Maun end of July 2019.
