BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE WITH YOU
Afrika Tikkun was founded in 1994 with the goal of making a difference in South Africa by developing and uplifting young people in under-privileged communities. We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to be the best that they can be. We are passionate about developing young people together with like-minded partners, through innovative and enterprising ways, to impact the economy of South Africa. We want to end child poverty and youth unemployment. We do this through a holistic approach that begins in early childhood and ends with productive adults accessing the economy. Our model provides 360° care of the nutrition, health, and social needs of the young person. It also includes personal, leadership and academic development throughout youth; skills development for out-of-school youth; and ultimately work placement. This approach is called our Cradle-to-Career 360° model, and it has earned us recognition for being one of the most impactful organisations in South Africa.
