Dear Alumni

Legacy – that’s the buzzword at the moment. It’s good to be inspired by one, and it’s even better to build one. Think of “legacy” as both a goal and value. We hope that you are inspired through stories reflected here and challenged to consider whether what you are doing with your life is going to leave a legacy. May The Story of Babalwa Inspire You to Keep On Going.

This was a decision that opened a life-changing opportunity for her. Read her full story.

Afrika Tikkun Talent Day 2018

On Saturday 21st July 2018 at the Mfuleni Centre and on Saturday 28th July 2018 at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, we held our annual Afrika Tikkun Talent Day, a day when we pay tribute to Nelson Mandela, our former Patron in Chief and a day when 2,500 children and youth from our Western Cape and Gauteng Centres meet at the Annual inter-centre sports and cultural day.

It was an exciting and spectacular day at both events and was the culmination of the children and young people’s hard work and the highlight of the year, a day to showcase their skills and talent through education, arts and culture, music and sports. Take a look at one of the highlights of the day.

The African child must understand that the world is their oyster and they must never believe anyone that tells them otherwise. We are all born to be great and although it might take longer at times greatness can be achieved if we believe and work at it,” says Billy Selekane, who visited Afrika Tikkun during Mandela Week to offer a motivational talk to our young people in Diepsloot. We love his story of perseverance, read it here
