Mission

Over the last 20 years, Afrika Tikkun has built a sustainable future by enabling today's disadvantaged children and youth to become tomorrow's productive citizens. Through our unique and proven Cradle-to-Career model, we invest in the sustenance, education and social development of 19,000 children from early infancy through young adulthood and into gainful employment. South Africa's multitudes of disadvantaged children face unique challenges that are no fault of their own. For many, lack of access to basics such as having parents, food, shelter and healthcare means that daily life revolves around simple survival, frequently leading away from education and social promise into despair driven crime. Afrika Tikkun's mission is to break the cycle of poverty, providing these children with Hope, Capability and Promise - the education, life-skills and confidence to become the self-sustaining, productive future of the country. This was the shared goal of Nelson Mandela, our founding Patron, whose legacy we strive to live by and to instill in all those we touch.

Programs

Afrika Tikkun invests in the development of disadvantaged youth from cradle to career by providing a holistic set of educational, health, and social services designed to propel students into adult success. These services include three core programmes: Early Childhood Development to prepare young children for school; Child and Youth Development to help students make positive life, learning and career choices; and Youth Skills Development and Placement to provide career guidance, training and placement. Our goal is to empower communities to develop new generations of productive citizens in order to provide a sustainable future for children in South African townships.
