Afrika Tikkun was founded in 1994 with the goal of developing and uplifting young people in underprivileged communities in South Africa. We work to end child poverty and youth unemployment by implementing our Cradle-to-Career 360° model (C2C). This approach includes personal, leadership and academic development while also addressing the nutrition, health, and social needs of the young person. In addition to our work readiness programmes designed to lead to work placements, we also implement skills development for out-of-school youth. We are passionate about working with like-minded partners who also take the long view to support kids from early childhood until they are productive adults accessing the economy. C2C has earned us recognition for being one of the most impactful organisations in South Africa.
