Progress is our purpose. Impacting lives is our mission.

We believe every young person deserves the opportunity to experience a fulfilled life. Our Cradle-to-Career 360° Programmes are designed to enrich and sustain our young people from ages 0-35. We focus on wraparound development solutions including education, health, nutrition, personal development and skills development that empower our young people to become self-confident, capable adults. Together with Afrika Tikkun, your partnership will impact the lives of a nation needing to grow, willing to work, eager to achieve and wanting to build on their dreams.

360 Degree Social Support Services

360 Degrees - the backbone of our programmes

Afrika Tikkun commits to a 360° Social Support Service (SSS) for our youth in vulnerable communities. We believe the life cycle of achievement is not complete unless all the moving parts are positively impacted. Our social services programmes include education, family services, food security, healthcare and nutrition, as well as a dedicated empowerment programme for our learners living with disabilities and their families. Our wraparound guided programmes create platforms for long term support that reach well into our young people’s mature years.

No help too insignificant…

Afrika Tikkun has proven that it has the ability to reach sections of our disadvantaged population at grassroots level. It therefore provides both physical help, as well as giving hope and dignity to the recipients.”

Total SA

Corporate Partner

As one of our CSI focus areas - Youth inclusion and Education - is aligned with Afrika Tikkun's programmes, it remains a privilege to be partnering with a credible and well-reputed non-profit organisation like Afrika Tikkun, dedicated to the reduction of youth unemployment in the country.

Recognising the moral imperatives governing human affairs, men and women of goodwill can face up to the challenge of our time and make the caring society a reality. So it was from that idea that the word Tikkun was used to start an initiative that would harness the energies of those committed to building a new South Africa.
