    • Welcome to Afrika Tikkun 2012Long term impact through infrastructure Development
    • VISION STATEMENTA sustainable future for childrenin South African townships
    • How do we do thisThe organisation aims to:• Provide education, health and social services to children, youth and their families through centres of excellence in South African Townships.• Empower communities to develop new generations of productive citizens• Follow the Holistic Development Model which includes child and youth care, primary health care, and support services• Build and run centres of excellence in the six townships/informal settlements in which we work• Build partnerships with government, the communities, other non- governmental organisations and donors to ensure the beneficiaries/clients’ needs are met appropriately
    • How we do this cont…• Development centres are structured as Centres of Excellence providing early childhood and youth development as well as administrative resources for all the community outreach work.• Related to these focus areas are support services that facilitate the operation of the centres, including nutrition/feeding programmes, vegetable gardens, transport for project managers, for patients to clinics and for meals distribution.• Each Centre is managed by a Project Manager supported by a team consisting of a Social Worker, Professional Nurse Co-ordinator, The Caregiver Team, Youth Leaders, ECD Practitioners and Child and Youth Care Professionals.• 4 communities in Gauteng (Alexandra, Hillbrow, Diepsloot and Orange Farm) and 2 in the Western Cape (Delft and Mfuleni) by assisting each community to set up Community Boards and Community Management Forums that take responsibility for the day-to-day activities and outreach programmes implemented in the community.
    • Our PartnershipsOrange Farm - AreKopaneng Community Centre• Afrika Tikkun started delivering services in Orange Farm from 2002 through the Tjhebele Pele partnership which comprised seven community based organisations.• In 2007 we formed a partnership with Arekopaneng, a NGO that offered the community a crèche and a skills development centre, with the intention of developing a Centre of Excellence for Orange Farm on the site which belongs to the City of Johannesburg.• An ECD centre, funded by RAM Hand-to-Hand Couriers, Belron and the Gauteng Department of Social Development, was built and opened in 2008. It has four classrooms, a large outdoor play area, hall and a toy library, offering services to children with learning disabilities.• In 2010 a two-storey, purpose-designed Child and Youth Development Centre was built at a cost of over R8-million. This centre offers a library/learning centre, computer room, arts and crafts room, dining room/mixed use hall, administrative offices, offices for the home based care and community care workers and youth interns, a special needs area, counselling/meeting rooms, kitchen and store rooms, and a covered sports hall. A running track surrounds the Centre and adds to the hive of activities that endear the Centre to the local community.• There are over 250 children in the ECD Centre and almost 500 older children participate in the Youth programmes daily.• Services offered – ECD, Child and Youth Development, Family support services, Nutrition, Food Security and Support Services, Primary Health Care.• 2011/2012 – game plan – formalise Child and Youth Development Programme
