Afrika Tikkun is dedicated to the reduction of youth unemployment in South Africa by
tackling the socio-economic drivers that make it difficult for young people to access the
economy as productive citizens.
With an investment in five community resource centres in disadvantaged communities; we
are able to afford young people the opportunity to receive educational, personal
development and structured support services for them and their families. The community
centres deliver a variety of developmental services to young people in Orange Farm;
Alexandra; Diepsloot and Braampark (Gauteng) and Mfuleni (Western Cape).
We aim to reduce unemployment by empowering young people in the context of the family.
Which is why, we focus on education, personal development, nutrition, health, family
support, skills development, and ultimately work placement. This approach defines our
Cradle-to-Career model.

The Cradle-to-Career model is implemented through three core programmes and four support programmes.

Afrika Tikkun has three core programmes, each focused on the specific developmental and age-appropriate needs of children and youth. These are:

1. Early Childhood Development: ?This is focussed on age appropriate development andschool readiness milestones for children aged 2 to 6 years.

2. Child & Youth Development: ?This is an after-school programme for young people from Grade 1 to Grade 12, and provides a series of activities for education, career guidance, leadership and personal development.

3. Career Development Programme: This provides career development, job readiness training, specialised training (Retail, Hospitality & ITC), job placement and bursaries for further learning. This is targeted at young people with a matric or equivalent between the ages of 19-29 years.

The core programmes are augmented by 4 cross-cutting Support Programmes, which include:

4. Primary Health Care: ?Providing basic healthcare services to young people and their families

5. Family Support: Providing Psychological and family support services to address the young person’s needs within the context of their family circumstances.

6. Nutrition & Food: ?Providing young people with daily meals and where required (as verified by our Social Worker) monthly food parcels, emergency relief and school lunch boxes.

7. Empowerment: ?Providing young people and their families with the tools and support to actively pursue their human rights as agents of change within their homes, community and country across all our core programmes.

Afrika Tikkun has over 12, 000 registered beneficiaries every year who each receive a comprehensive set of services designed to propel them into success. In addition, we provide services to over 10, 000 beneficiaries on ad-hoc interventions.
