The township communities that we serve are particularly vulnerable to the spread of infectious disease with high levels of HIV & TB affecting individuals
Communities are characterised by high levels of poverty with no financial security nets in place & limited access to knowledge & resources
Workers in the informal economy may not have the luxury of staying at home with paid sick leave & social distancing is incredibly difficult in informal housing

How we succeed
Afrika Tikkun has a well established and trusted connection with the communities in which we work.
Our communities are relying on us to continue providing support during this time even though our normal programmes have temporarily closed.
Hundreds of families in South Africa's most vulnerable communities will receive food and medical advice and assistance over the coming weeks and months.
Afrika Tikkun's development approach is centred around a holistic outlook. During the lockdown this means providing for our communities in any way that we can.
Afrika Tikkun believes in the holistic development of a child. Through our cradle to career model, we provide services that support the needs of a child from their early childhood to adulthood. Our mission is to give young people the tools to become economically empowered adults.
