Afrika Tikkun Annual Review

Afrika Tikkun is building a sustainable future by enabling today’s disadvantaged children and youth to become tomorrow’s productive citizens. We do this via a unique and proven Cradle-to-Career model which invests in the education and social development of children from early infancy through young adulthood and into gainful employment.

South Africa’s multitudes of disadvantaged children face unique challenges that are no fault of their own. For many, lack of access to basics such as having parents, food, shelter and healthcare means that daily life revolves around simple survival, frequently leading away from education and social promise into despair driven crime.

Afrika Tikkun's mission is to break the cycle of poverty, providing these children with Hope, Capability and Promise - the education, life-skills and confidence to become the self-sustaining, productive future of the country. This is the shared goal of Nelson Mandela, our founding Patron, whose legacy we strive to live by and to instill in all those we touch.

Community investment and, more particularly, how we remain relevant to the communities in which we operate, is a key pillar of our citizenship-agenda. Our community investment team focuses on projects that develop the financial-, enterprise development-, and numeracy and literacy skills of disadvantaged youths between 10 and 35 years – increasing their chances of employment. We have a strong preference for initiatives that are innovative, use different channels to increase their reach, and collaborate to evolve with best practice, thereby increasing their impact. We particularly look for programmes that address both supply and demand, linking an initiative to an opportunity. We are very excited to commit to two projects with Afrika Tikkun in 2014, as both showcase best practice and innovation. The Afrika Tikkun Employability Project not only provides excellent training, but also has the right networks to ensure job placements for at least 50% of participants. Likewise, the Step-Up-2-a-Start-Up enterprise development project, that includes the best of international and local thinking, reaches 15,000 youths through movie theatres. As a financial services organisation, this focus enables us to allocate significant business resources in support of these programmes, as well as mobilise colleagues through volunteering. We hope that these efforts will make a true difference in building a better world for South Africa’s youth. Stephen van Coller Chief Executive Corporate & Investment Banking, Barclays Africa Group
  4. 4. AFRIKA TIKKUN (NPC) – CHAIRMAN’S REPORT 2 New initiatives changing lives The issue of growing youth unemployment is increasingly recognized as one of the most disturbing economic and social issues facing the country. One in two youth under the age of 25 is unemployed, and most unemployed young people don’t have the knowledge or resources to generate a sustainable income. The repercussions affect the stability of the country’s future, whilst draining social funding. The remedy does not lie in quick-fix training programs, applied in isolation by individual corporate organisations. Intervention is required early on in a child’s development, particularly where children have few role models of sustained permanent employment. In light of these facts, Afrika Tikkun Services (Pty) Limited was established as a separate entity to the developmental activities of the non-profit entity to provide job readiness-training and consulting services, with the support of a handful of key companies who saw economic value in the project – from a BBBEE perspective as well as the potential of new employees from the pool of applicants developed and screened by Afrika Tikkun Services (Pty) Limited. The results achieved in the first year of operations were in line with expectations, and the newly appointed team under the management of Errol Pillay are to be complimented for establishing a solid foundation in this complex, but promising, business sector. The MaAfrika Tikkun Endowment Trust was fortunate to see an improvement in the value of its equity holdings, and the trustees extend genuine appreciation to those corporations, particularly the Redefine Group, who saw value in retaining and growing our participation in their equity structures. MaAfrika Tikkun Endowment Trust is a well-suited BBBEE partner capable of delivering tangible SED, job training, and placement- and advisory services to equity partners who recognize our integrated approach.

The board has therefore continued to plan conservatively, and cash flow and cash management remains a priority. The achievements of the organisation were remarkable, considering the effects of retrenchment and cut-backs of certain activities. But sound and firm business practises, combined with an authentic care for the beneficiaries, ensured that the organisation maintained its prized standing within communities. Whilst we are, I believe, justifiably proud of what we’re achieving, it is difficult to budget ahead because of the uncertainty of finances. Therefore, in particular, if we had government to not only applaud us, which they do, but to jointly participate with us in our programmes, the outcome can be dramatically improved. Not only could we then deploy increased capital, but know that we have an assured stream of money without living with the uncertainty and fear that we may have to reduce our programmes and put children back on the streets. We also hope that our donors support us in our desire to work with government, because there is a tangible need in our country and we need to employ our resources into joint programmes that may boost this economy. I would like to extend my appreciation to my fellow board colleagues who genuinely contribute not only to governance in terms of ensuring adequate controls, but add value through contributing their wealth of personal and professional knowledge to the business of developing children and youth into the mainstream South African economy. In so doing, they empower local communities to empower themselves – ultimately the most effective way of ensuring sustainability. I wish the executive team and all of the Tikkun family, allied organisations, government participants and partners great success as we embark on this motivated new course of creating employable resources so desperately needed in this wonderful country of ours.

  8. 8. AFRIKA TIKKUN (NPC) – CEO REPORT 6 Changing lives: From cradle to career The strategic alliances of Afrika Tikkun address the demand for corporates, foundations, private individuals and government departments to develop children from disadvantaged backgrounds into jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities. The association provides for the development of infants through to the end of their schooling through Afrika Tikkun (NPC) operating from community centres in townships across South Africa. However these development efforts were not enough to ensure employment for township youth. Afrika Tikkun (Pty) Limited (ATS) was formed, an Enterprise Development, training and placement company with the vision to secure employment and break the cycle of poverty. Each company is governed by separate boards and managed by independent executive management as each has a separate but aligned set of objectives. Afrika Tikkun takes a holistic approach to the development of children and youth who seek to address their educational, psychosocial, health and economic needs. In order to provide services and interventions that support them from cradle to career, Afrika Tikkun has three core programmes, each focused on specific developmental and age-appropriate needs: 1. Early Childhood Development (ECD) provides home-based together with centre-based support for children up to 6 years of age, and development services for those aged 2-6, getting them school-ready. 2. Child and Youth Development (CYD) provides sports, arts and culture, learning, homework support, and life-skills intervention for specific age groups of 7-9 years, 10-13 years, 14-16 years and 17-18 years. The key outcome is a higher matric pass rate, whilst also providing career information and further learning opportunities. 3. Skills and Enterprise Development (SED) which are offered from an alliance with ATS, a separate legal entity provides career guidance, job readiness-training, entrepreneurial training, job placement and bursaries for further learning. It targets young adults aged 19-35, with a matric or equivalent. The key outcome is to equip young people with skills to navigate the labour market and find sustainable employment or create new enterprises.

Afrika Tikkun NPC – FRom Cradle to Career Afrika Tikkun NPC – Community Impact Afrika Tikkun NPC – Financials Afrika Tikkun Services (PTY ) LIMITE d Afrika Tikkun NP C – Partnerships Afrika Tikkun NPC – Governance 7 AFRIKA TIKKUN (NPC) – CEO REPORT While the latter programmes are designed to build on skills acquired in the previous levels, each programme also offers specific educational- and developmental outcomes in its own right. As such, participants can enter, exit, and re-enter the programmes at any point. In line with Afrika Tikkun’s holistic approach to child and youth development, the programmes also offer support services including primary health care services, nutritional and food security services; and family support services for children, youth and their families on a case-by-case basis.
  10. 10. AFRIKA TIKKUN (NPC) – CEO REPORT 8 New initiatives and tangible results Year upon year, Afrika Tikkun strives to improve its service offering and refine its practices in order to offer the maximum possible value for all beneficiaries and partners in the long run. This year, some exciting new initiatives have already shown great promise, building on our already-solid foundation: A new era This past year, Afrika Tikkun embarked on a strategy to improve the effectiveness of the centre based-programmes, and orienting the child- and youth development programmes towards the ultimate goal of creating employable individuals who would be introduced to job opportunities. Improved library support services and computer-based learning replaced some of the recreational activities that were considered less important in the career development-process. We will continue to refine these programmes as we work with major players in the development of career readiness programmes. The ultimate plan is to ensure that Afrika Tikkun is regarded as a leading provider of competent first-time job seekers and potential graduates of university programmes. Emphasis is being placed on exceptional matric results, requiring many years of pre-matric preparation in both life skills and academic support. We will achieve this by integrating the specialised services of other complementary organisations. The reorientation of our services requires constant monitoring and evaluation as a standard in our daily processes. As such, a more advanced evaluation system will be implemented this year. By having access to this impact data and statistical reports, we will be able to constantly analyse the effect of our work. The plan for the year ahead is to grow the number of youth graduating from the Afrika Tikkun centres so that they become eligible for placement by ATS and other placement organisations. Special thanks This past year, operating costs at Afrika Tikkun sites were kept below budget at R44,957,255, whilst organisational overheads including marketing, fundraising and financial administration amounted to a further R9,208,272. The R54,225,118 income received therefore covered the total costs of R54,165,527, with operating overheads representing 83% of the total income.

May we continue to forge ahead, building on our blessed success, in the years to come. • Afrika Tikkun continues to invest in the competencies of its staff at all levels. This differentiates the organisation from many others, as on-going training ensures that the organisation operates at optimal efficiency. It is most encouraging to see the development of managerial teams who competently bring their own creativity and enthusiasm to specific operational areas. Our culture of encouraging individuals to direct their enthusiasm into tangible and measurable outcomes is one of the reasons we are able to attract and retain the staff that we do. I would like to thank the family of 578 staff members who bring meaningful change to so many young lives every day. • I would also like to pay tribute to the many professional specialist organisations ensuring that we are well-guided in our efforts. • In thanking our various supporters who ensured that the organisation was funded with R54 million, I also acknowledge the work of the development team championed by Onyi Nwaneri. Onyi not only goes in search of funds, but together with our esteemed Executive Deputy Chairman Herby Rosenberg, ensures we co-opt contributors as family, friends and indeed partners. • Leonie van Tonder, an outstanding manager of both people and systems, took over the role of organisational COO in January. She successfully implemented an organisational behavioural realignment-plan for leadership, driven by value-defined principles, and her impact has been immediate and most effective. • My thanks to the indefatigable Arnold Forman, whose attention to detail and strict control gives us the security of operating from a place of financial knowledge, while stakeholders have a very practical understanding of our performance. • My gratitude to chairman Bertie Lubner, the most responsible yet passionate human being I know, to our boards of directors and trustees who have supported this pioneering and ambitious vision, and to all who have encouraged us in whatever form to build a world of better prospects for us all.

  14. 14. A well-oiled machine To ensure the proper functioning of an operation the size of Afrika Tikkun, several systems are in place to closely monitor all activities: Afrika Tikkun is governed by a board of directors and managed by a CEO who is an ex-officio of the board. The board meets quarterly, with an annual general meeting and report of the annual audited financials. The members are professionals with degrees in the fields of accountancy, law, business administration and other masters degrees. The Executive Management Committee (EXCO), which includes departmental and programme heads, is made up of professionals from different backgrounds, including law, human rights, finance and the fields of child- and youth care. This team meets bi-weekly to provide managerial direction and risk assessment, and to ensure cost-efficiency the best possible programme delivery. As an organisation, we continuously develop new systems that analyse and oversee risk, quality, procurement, finances, human resources and information management to ensure proper management and delivery of projects. All our systems are guided by the following policies: Human Resources Policy, HIV Policy, Financial Policy, ICT Policy, Child Protection Policy, and others. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) The broad M&E components of our programme are based on a theory of change, which has been tested and approved across the organisation. Some of the monitoring tools that we currently use include: • Soweto Care System: Database software designed to facilitate the client administration of NGOs; focusing on home-based care, orphans and vulnerable children, and voluntary counselling and testing. Clients, employees, home-visits, client needs and programmes can be entered and updated in the system, after which comprehensive reports for management and partners are generated, and these reports can be accessed at any time. • Implementation- and log frame-plans: An annual strategic log frame lists all the objectives, activities, targets, indicators and means of verification. Log frames are reviewed quarterly with programme staff and in monthly supervisory sessions with programme managers. • Weekly/monthly narrative reports: Weekly highlights, current success stories and monthly narrative reports discuss impact, challenges and targets. • Management/financial reports: Monthly management reports are prepared per site, per programme (comparing actual costs and budgeted costs/beneficiaries). The budget is prepared in conjunction with the implementation- and log frame-plans. Arnold Forman Financial Director AFRIKA TIKKUN (NPC) – MANAGEMENT AND GOVERNANCE 12

The year kicked off with a coaching programme for general managers, which immediately resulted in a remarkable improvement in their respective handling of tasks. A staff satisfaction survey was then conducted, which highlighted three main concerns. These were unfairness in the workplace, lack of communication up and down the line, and security concerns. All these matters were addressed with practical solutions. Communication forums were created to immediately address staff concerns in each of the Afrika Tikkun centres, while only matters that the general managers cannot handle are referred up the line. To date, all issues have been promptly dealt with, and resolved. Security changes were made where possible in the areas around our centres in order to accommodate the staff. The philosophy of Care and Growth, an extraordinary approach to principled leadership, was rolled out to staff – starting with the executive management committee. The aim is to focus leadership on their role, and those of others, to establish a basis for legitimate leadership – a leadership style where integrity and trustworthiness are the main drivers to ensure a trustworthy and enthusiastic team. Twenty staff members from the Early Childhood Development Centres completed the NQF4-training course, and four staff members received NQF5 training. All teachers are now NQF4-graded, or higher qualified. In the Child and Youth Programme, 52 of our facilitators also qualified as child- and youth workers on an NQF4- level. The staff members’ tireless work had tangible effects in beneficiaries’ lives. We cared for an average of 1,152 children per day throughout the year in the Early Childhood Development Centres. In the Child and Youth-programme, an average of 5,413 children received daily after-school care, and care during school holidays. The well-supported libraries and IT-laboratories in these centres equip the children with the skills to achieve better results in their school work, and, as such, a better chance of successful careers. In the life skills- and arts and crafts-classes, children are also equipped with creative knowledge and the opportunity to express themselves on a new level and in a supportive environment. The Family Support Services-section, headed up by social workers, worked endlessly to create a better and more supportive environment for children at home. Some of the services include provision of food parcels, assistance with grants, and primary health support. They also got involved in a number of crime cases, where much-needed support was given to the affected families. We look forward to the new year, and the opportunity to serve communities through a better-qualified, responsible and accountable workforce. Leonie van Tonder COO

To watch their growth and increased scope of projects evolve over the years has been a humbling and uplifting experience. Afrika Tikkun’s Cradle to Career model invests in the development of children from early infancy into young adulthood and into the world of work. This approach ties in closely with Grant Thornton’s objective of growing our profession and our country. Over 2% of our fees are dedicated annually to the upliftment of our community, made up mainly by donating the time and expertise of our professionals. It is indeed a privilege to assist AfrikaTikkun as auditors and accountants and we hope to continue our association with this extraordinary organisation for many years to come.

It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” (Nelson Mandela – 2002) The scale of problems facing Afrika Tikkun is sometimes daunting. But the reward for its perseverance is the credibility it has achieved in its short life, not only within the community and those who receive its assistance, but also in government, business circles, and other NGOs. The most important lesson learned has been that of expectations. The more Afrika Tikkun achieves, the more is expected of it and the more resources, both material and human, are required. Thank you for the difference you have made in improving the lives of so many young children in South Africa. Over the past year, the number of children we helped has increased from 17,000 (2013) to 19,621 (2014) – a total of 2,621 more lives changed. We at Afrika Tikkun sincerely appreciate the example set through your generous contributions towards our work. Our unique approach of Cradle to Career plus various partnerships, including you, our investors, the government and local community, has been extremely successful. Many children and youths participating in our programmes are able to realize their dreams of becoming responsible and productive citizens. With your help, we are building a sustainable future for the children and youth of South Africa. Once again, our heartfelt thanks for your partnership and support during this year.

  28. 28. Chairman’s comment This year, we celebrate the increasing maturity of Afrika Tikkun Services (PTY) Limited (ATS) formed as an aligned strategic partnering organisation. The birth of ATS in 2012 enabled us to position the company as an organisation capable of meeting the transformation agenda of our corporate partners. Its service offering naturally builds on Afrika Tikkun’s youth development programmes, ensuring real and current job opportunities to beneficiaries. The combination of the developmental activities from the NPC with the job readiness and placement activities of the (Pty) Limited company offers great promise, and is the first of its kind in the country. After Afrika Tikkun develops children from infancy to young adulthood, ATS’ job readiness-training, assessment and career placement offers a tangible model for breaking the cycle of poverty and addressing the critical issue of youth unemployment. ATS showed acceptable performance in its first year. Whilst a set-up operating loss was incurred, as anticipated, a business plan was formulated that ensures that youth from Afrika Tikkun programmes, as well as certain other areas in the broader community, are assessed, developed, skilled, and recruited into a wide array of job opportunities. The inclusion of John Botha, former executive director of Adcorp, and Gavin Freeman (ED FM) have contributed to ensuring the relevance of the work undertaken in this complex field. Their contribution to the formation and expansion of the business of ATS is significant and appreciated. Errol Pillay, CEO of ATS, has shown himself to be a dedicated, motivated and highly principled leader that cares as much for the fulfilment of children into job objectives as he does for the commercial liability of the business of ATS.

  30. 30. Afrika Tikkun Services (Pty) LIMITED grows exponentially According to the Quarterly Labour Force Survey by Statistics South Africa, in the third quarter of 2013, 34.8% of young South Africans could not find a job this increases to 47.5% if one consider youth who lost hope in this regard. Afrika Tikkun Services (Pty) Limited (ATS) was set up to respond to this reality in our country through fulfilling the career mandate of the Cradle to Career model. ATS was established as a for -profit entity in order to contribute to the sustainability of the Afrika Tikkun model. ATS owned by the MaAfrika Tikkun Endowment Trust, pass on all nett income generated within ATS to the Trust and to further the work of Afrika Tikkun in communities. ATS provides skills development services, project management and consulting services, along skills deployment services. The ATS training and development programmes is framed on interventions that unlock individual potential and address the psycho-social development of youth by providing youth with appropriate world of work exposure. It is our belief that these modules are essential for sustainable development of youth and that they enhance the theoretical work around career readiness. Initial funding from RAM provided for the start up to ATS. The first year of operations was dedicated to creating a tangible product offering compliant with holistic skills development principles and SAQA accreditation. ATS programmes help beneficiaries once they leave grade 12 with dedicated career programmes and link these individuals up with real opportunities within corporates. Last year two pilot programmes, benefitting 385 youth, were concluded and a comprehensive skills database for job placement opportunities was created. A central job centre was created at our Phutaditjaba Centre in Alexandra, with the help of partnerships; the centre was created to provide young people with career information and access to the job market through a national placement service. The evaluation of our impact is measured in the number of individuals placed in work opportunities. All youth on our database are interviewed to allow for career guidance and appropriate matching with career opportunities. In 2013, we sent out 2,381 CVs and placed approximately 150 candidates in short-term and permanent jobs. These youth would otherwise not have had the same exposure. ATS was also able to improve its BBBEE accreditation from level 3 to level 2. Our focus in 2014 will be to expand our database, and continue to recruit, train and place candidates in career opportunities linked with corporates and the BBBEE objectives. Our client engagement strategy for 2014 is to become the first port of call for sustainable career solutions for unemployed youth in the communities we serve. We are confident that our efforts in 2014 will enhance Afrika Tikkun`s Cradle to Career model and lead to profitable income to further sustain the work we do as Afrika Tikkun from Cradle to Career, well into the future.
