Building a BETTER future!
Afrika Tikkun USA, Inc. (a 501(c)3), is the North American representative of Afrika Tikkun, a multi-award-winning nonprofit, headquartered in South Africa. Afrika Tikkun’s vision is guided by the legacy of Nelson Mandela, who after seeing firsthand the impact and unique approach of our life-changing model, volunteered to become our Patron in Chief in 1999; an honor he bestowed on only four organizations worldwide. For over 25 years, Afrika Tikkun has been breaking the cycle of poverty in the most disadvantaged communities in South Africa. We do this by enabling over 20,000 underprivileged children and youth from impoverished communities to become self-sustaining and productive citizens of South African society. Through our unique Cradle-to-Career model, we invest in education, food security and
life-skills from early childhood through adulthood and into gainful employment.
