A New Year

From everyone at Afrika Tikkun, Happy 2014! May this year bring you prosperity and joy. This is our second year being part of the Global Giving family and we would like to thank all of you and Global Giving for believing in our cause. Without you, we would not be able to impact the lives of over 17,000 beneficiaries from “cradle to career.”


Cradle to Career

Our cradle to career model is innovative as it targets different areas of development. Our focus is to holistically invest in all factors that affect development from cradle to career: education, health care and social services for children, youths and parents or caregivers. This comprehensive approach leads to optimal benefits for the child as well as their families and community.


The Passing of a Great Man

Nelson Mandela, our Patron in Chief, passed away this past year. We are proud to share Mandela’s passion and dream of building a brighter and more sustainable future for South Africa from “cradle to career.”

Here are some words from the great man:

Afrika Tikkun has proven that it has the ability to reach our disadvantaged population as a grassroots level. It provides both physical help as well as hope and dignity to the recipients.


Nutrition and Food Security

Many children do not have access to resources such as nutrition. Children who do not receive adequate nutrition are not able to focus in school. We are proud to share with you that our Nutrition and Food Security Program was able to provide over 450,000 meals.
