Summary

Due to the lockdown, Afrika Tikkun shifted their training to online platforms, putting many candidates at risk of falling off the program due to lack of access to technology and internet. Your gift will help disadvantaged students access online learning so they can continue their journey towards a bright future.

Challenge

Due to COVID-19, youth unemployment is all time high in South Africa. Many South African township schools have poor infrastructure that cannot support the roll out of online learning. Millions of kids are falling behind. If we do not address this issues, youth unemployment will continue to rise causing young people to be trapped in poverty.

Solution

Equipping our community centers to be digitally smart responds to this gap and enables our young people to continue their learning and eventually become economically empowered. Afrika Tikkun uses demand-driven training programs to assist our young candidates develop skills that are needed in the job market. As we venture into 2021, help us to bridge the digital divide and prepare our young people for more interactive, engaging and digitized learning experiences.

Long-Term Impact

By donating to this campaign, you will be assisting a cohort of extremely committed candidates to complete their training and take their place in a modern economy. By giving access to internet and technology, disadvantaged people will be empowered to continue their learning and reach their full potential.
