Afrika Tikkun has impacted the lives of over 36,000 individual children and thousands of families since they began working in these communities in 1994. Their crèches, pre-schools and after school programmes are currently reaching 3,000 children and their home based care and community outreach programmes are reaching well over 7,000 homes.
Afrika Tikkun consults closely with community leaders, community-based organisations and residents to identify areas of critical need. They tailor their programmes to meet these needs and train community members to deliver them. Community ownership and participation is crucial as it leads to community ownership, acceptance and sustainability.
