Afrika Tikkun was founded in 1994 and aims to end child poverty and youth unemployment through Cradle-to-Career 360° support throughout the child and young person’s life, from the very early years until adulthood. We believe all young people deserve the opportunity to be the best they can be – and in order to do that we support them in every way until they are economically productive. Its work has earned Afrika Tikkun recognition for being one of the most impactful organisations in South Africa.
Ending Child Poverty is no mean feat – it needs the cooperation of the entire globe – of a generation of people who believe that poverty, especially for children, can be overcome. Afrika Tikkun needs and values its partners, and Global Citizen is a true kindred spirit when it comes to what is on our heart (mission) and mind (our vision). Our investment in the life of a child is a long term solution to ending poverty – we’re in it for the long haul and so is Global Citizen.
