Afrika Tikkun

Afrika Tikkun is a non-profit organization dedicated to the eradication of poverty by caring for vulnerable children in townships through their cradle-to-career approach. Using a holistic development model, Afrika Tikkun runs programmes that address the various needs of township children. These programs include early childhood development, childhood and youth development, Job readiness and Enterprise Development, nutrition, primary health care and family support services. All of these programs are implemented through Afrika Tikkun Centers of Excellence in Gauteng (Diepsloot, Alexandra, Braampark & Orange Farm) and the Western Cape (Delft & Mfuleni). These programs are used not only to assist children in their development, but also to empower the communities into which Afrika Tikkun works
