WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY CHILD HAS THE POTENTIAL TO  CHANGE THE WORLD. MAKE SURE THAT THEY CAN!

The future of South Africa and the world lies in the hope of our youth. They see opportunities where we see challenges; they dare to dream about a different tomorrow. Unfortunately, not all the youth are given the opportunity to be able to make a difference in their communities and our country, and organizations like Afrika Tikkun are geared and focused on supporting & developing these kids from cradle to career. You have the chance to provide these kids with the opportunity to become the best that they can be.

OUR SOLUTION 

Our Cradle to Career model is our commitment to supporting children from infancy into adulthood and employment to ensure that they become the next generation of productive South African citizens. The model works from the context of family to provide services to children from birth through school and into the world of work. Through cross referrals between programmes, we ensure the holistic development of young people by providing them what they need to emerge as adults who can access the economy.
