Alumni June Newsletter

Alumni Day 15 & 21 June 2019 a moment we won’t forget and celebrating our youth month

Over 600 Afrika Tikkun Alumni gathered on the 15th and 21st of June as part of the annual, Alumni Summit. The events offered a seminar talk on the 4th Industrial Revolution and the discussion exploring the opportunities available for  young people in the 4th Industrial Economy. Amongst the panelist, we had African Bank, National Empowerment Fund, and Cloudsmiths. Also, we presented success stories of young people that have found a gateway to be part of the new exciting economy. The event took place during our country’s youth month, a month known and put aside to celebrate and remember June 16, 1976. Our perspective is to continue celebrating the day and provide opportunities and a platform for young people to engage on youth development and access employment and entrepreneurial opportunities through our partners in corporate, youth development and academic institutions.

Are You Responsibly Kind

In the month of July we will be promoting the value Responsible Kindness. As Tikkuners we ought to live a life of responsible kindness, which involves far more than just simply being kind – it means that one has to be kind in a way that reflects the consciousness around being kind. In this way, we ensure that we are not creating ongoing dependency, but rather orient our kindness towards empowerment.
